Quebec's police watchdog to investigate fatal crash near Lacolle border

Quebec's independent investigation bureau will look into a fatal collision in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle last night.

One person died when the car they were in crashed into a pole during an operation involving the Sûreté du Québec.

The collision happened on Route 202 near Lapierre Street, about 15 kilometres away from the Lacolle border crossing.

The road is closed in the area so investigators can determine the circumstances surrounding the incident.
