    Rather than stopping, the motorist would have taken the flight before being involved in a second collision a few hundred metres away, at the intersection of rue Sainte-Catherine and Préfontaine.

    Under the force of the impact, the vehicle of the suspect has made at least a barrel and finished his race on the side, in the middle of the street.
