A 74-year-old man is dead and a 33-year-old woman is in hospital after a collision Sunday morning in Montreal’s Verdun borough.
Montreal police spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant said the incident happened at around 10: 30 a.m near the intersection of Bannantyne Street and Brown Avenue.
Brabant said preliminary witness reports obtained by officers indicate a vehicle, driven by a 74-year-old man, hit another vehicle before striking a pedestrian and injuring her.
She was taken to hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries to her lower body.
The 74-year-old man was also taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Brabant said the victim may have had a stroke or a heart attack before losing control of his car.
The driver of the second vehicle was not injured in the collision.
Collision experts were at the scene on Sunday to investigate.
