Two men crushed and killed by car they were repairing in Brossard

Two men in their 60s are dead after a vehicle they were repairing fell and crushed them just south of Montreal.

Longueuil police say the incident happened around 1 p.m. Saturday in the driveway of a home in Brossard.

The two victims were rushed to hospital where they were pronounced dead.

Const. Melanie Mercille says a perimeter was set up around the residence and investigators disptahced to try to determine exactly what happened.

It appears to have been accident, but Mercille said investigators needed to confirm certain details.

At least one report said wooden blocks, which were holding up the car, gave way and that neighbors tried unsuccessfully to save the victims.
