The Sûreté du Québec is investigating a hit-and-run that could have had serious consequences on Highway 440 westbound in Quebec City on June 26 around 4:45 p.m.
In a viral video posted on the Facebook page Spotted: Quebec, we see a vehicle performing dangerous maneuvers on Highway 440 (Charest), just before the exit for the highway Henry IV.

On the video, a car traveling at a good speed zigzags and approaches the rear of the vehicle in front. Then there is a contact between the two vehicles which causes the loss of control of the first car which will hit the parapet on the highway.
“There were two people on board the vehicle who effected the loss of control. These two people were transported to the hospital, much more for checks, because there were no apparent injuries. They were still taken to the hospital for an evaluation,” said Sergeant Stéphane Tremblay, spokesperson for the SQ.
“There is a file that has been opened for hit and run. There has been an investigation ever since. There has been no arrest to date of the other driver involved,” added Sergeant Tremblay.
Le Journal attempted to enter contact with the administrators of the Facebook page that uploaded the video in the last hours.
