    An 18 year old has just been criminally charged in a case of car surfing, which has seriously injured another youth in the parc du Mont-Royal.

    Four months after that a young man of 22 years has been sent to the hospital for serious injuries to the head, Cameron Micheal Stoute was finally charged at the Montréal courthouse.

    Stoute, a resident of Dollard-des-Ormeaux in the west island, is facing two charges of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and dangerous driving causing injury.

    According to the court document, the event took place on September 16, 2017. That night, Stoute would have ended up in the parc du Mont-Royal, on board of a Chevrolet red. For a reason unknown, he would have been a young man of 22 years of doing ” surfing on vehicle “.

    This is a dangerous practice, which is to stand on a moving vehicle, is not only “unacceptable” but also ” severely punished “, recalls the SAAQ on its website.

    “According to witnesses, the victim would have done the car surfing and the driver of the vehicle would have effected a manoeuvre that made sure that the victim has been projected before “, explained the spokesman of the Montreal police Caroline Chèvrefils.

    Critical state

    The young 22-year-old was quickly transported to hospital in a critical condition, but he survived his injuries.

    “The next day he was in a stable condition,” assured the police Chèvrefils.

    The police quickly intervened on the scene, to take Stoute in an operational centre, so that it is interrogated by specialists in collision investigation. He was released on a promise to appear in court a month later, but for a reason unknown, he has never had the need to be in court that day.

    But if Stoute believed that the actions alleged would be of no consequence, a justice of the peace magistrate has finally authorized the issuance of a warrant referred to. This means that it must appear, alone, at a date not specified.

    If he is found guilty, Stoute risk a maximum of 10 years imprisonment, although sentences are usually less.
