Sad story was reported in a text by Louis-Denis Ébacher of the newspaper Le Droit Thursday, involving a resident of Otter Lake. He allegedly hid the truth from police officers in a fatal accident in the Quyon area last year. He would have concealed the facts by saying that he was a mere passenger. The vehicle, which made a violent road trip on April 10th, 2018, would have caused the death of a 26 year old girl on the 148.

Le Droit learned that a resident of Otter Lake, Christopher Bérubé, 29, have been accused of deliberately deflecting the police investigation into the accident that killed the Gatineau girl, who was believed to be the driver . According to information obtained by the newspaper, Christopher Bérubé “misled police, saying that the young woman who died was the one who was driving”.

After analysis, experts concluded that it was “impossible for the woman to be driving.” According to Le Droit, it appears that the MRC des Collines police “will not be able, in the short term, to lay charges for dangerous driving causing death or impaired driving causing death” .

In 2018, Christopher Bérubé was forbidden to drive a motorized vehicle. We also note that the accused has several cases of non-compliance with the court’s commitment in recent years.

The defense entered into an agreement with the Crown to release his client on a $ 1,000 bond.
