Driver fighting for his life after crash at road construction site

A 49-year-old motorist was left fighting for his life in a hospital Wednesday after apparently losing control of his car as it entered a section of road undergoing construction on Highway 20 at Les Cèdres near Salaberry-de-Valleyfield.

Provincial police suspect the driver swerved to avoid collision barriers at the site, lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a parked truck.

Two people in the truck were not injured.

The force of the impact was such that first responders had to use hydraulic pliers to free the driver from his vehicle.

The incident remains under investigation.
