Sûreté du Québec (SQ) police have charged a 33-year-old man from Saint-Polycarpe, Que., more than three years after a fatal crash between Gatineau and Montreal, alleging he killed another driver on purpose.
The head-on collision happened around 1 p.m. Oct. 6, 2019 on Highway 50 in the municipality of Grenville-sur-la-Rouge, Que.
According to the SQ at that time, the driver of a truck left his lane and collided with an oncoming RV.
Both drivers were rushed to hospital with major injuries, police said. The driver of the RV, a 50-year-old man from the Montreal suburb of Mirabel, was pronounced dead later that day.
On Thursday, the SQ said in a French news release the driver that survived was arrested Wednesday and is being charged with second-degree murder.
Police allege he made a manoeuvre that led to the other driver's death.
