MONTREAL - A man in his sixties has died after a car crash on Friday afternoon in the Centre-du-Québec region of the province.

Provincial police say two drivers collided on Highway 55 in Sainte-Eulalie at around 2:45pm on Friday, resulting in one of the vehicle’s catching fire.

Police spokesperson Elizabeth Marquis-Guy says the older driver deviated into the opposing lane, hitting the other vehicle head-on.

The driver in his sixties was declared dead at the scene while the other driver, a woman in her forties, was rushed to hospital where she remains in critical condition.

Highway 55 was closed until around 9:00 p.m. but has since reopened.

The investigation is ongoing.
