    MONTREAL | A a young driver with impaired driving caused a head-on collision on the Jacques-Cartier bridge, Tuesday at midnight, when his vehicle has changed lane and collided with a car coming in the opposite direction.

    “The alcohol was not very high, but its probationary licence offers a limit of 0, launched Audrey-Ann Bilodeau, a spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec. The drug would also be in question, but the results are more long to arrive.”

    The young man and his three passengers were driving in the direction of Montreal when the lane change is carried out.

    The bridge was closed to southbound traffic until 2: 30.

    It could possibly be a fracture, but it would be out of danger.

    The at-fault driver has seen his license to be suspended.
