Levis driver in critical condition after flipping his vehicle on Quebec highway


A driver is fighting for his life in hospital after swerving on Principale Street and flipping his vehicle in the small municipality of Saint-Gervais, in the Chaudiere-Appalaches region.

The accident took place on Highway 279, around 11:15 p.m. Friday, said SQ spokesperson Sgt. Louis-Philippe Bibeau.

The man lost control of his vehicle in a curve on Highway 279 while travelling north. His vehicle rolled over several times.

 "The driver, who was alone was ejected from the vehicle," said Bibeau. “He is a man in his 30s from the Levis region. He was transported to a hospital in the Quebec region in a critical condition.''

 An SQ police officer specializing in collision investigation is investigating.

 At the moment, no theory is being ruled out to explain the swerve.
