A major accident caused the complete closure of Highway 30, in both directions, in Bécancour. Several people were injured, including one who is in critical condition.

According to initial information provided by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), five vehicles, including two heavy goods vehicles, were involved in the collision which occurred around 2:15 p.m. Monday afternoon. For a reason that remains to be established, a first vehicle would have deviated from its trajectory and ended up in the opposite direction.

A fire broke out after the impact. A thick plume of smoke was visible several kilometers from the accident site. Firefighters are currently continuing their intervention.

The highway will remain closed for an indefinite period. The area should be avoided for the next few hours.
