A fatal accident took place on Sunday evening, June 27, at the intersection of Highway 30 and Highway 15 on the south bank of the St. Lawrence River, about 30 kilometers south of Montreal. It was about 7:20 p.m. when a woman suddenly stopped her car to let a family of ducks cross the road. In that moment, with no time to react, three people hit the rear of the car with their motorcycles.
Andre Roy, 50, and his 16-year-old daughter, Jessie, which were on the same motorcycle, were killed in the accident. Pauline Volikakis, 40, the mother of the girl and spouse of the man, was riding on separate motorcycle and was severely injured, but now she is in stable condition. She witnessed the tragic incident.
"I was trying to comfort Jessie, but there was nothing I could do. I couldn't help her," she recalled. "Andre opened one eye, but that was all."
All of them are from St. Constant and were wearing helmets when the crash occurred.
The driver of the car, a 20 years old woman, was not hurt. Quebec provincial police Sgt. Richard Gagne said she may face charges in the case because it is illegal in Quebec to slam on the brakes in the middle of the highway — even to avoid hitting an animal. "I could understand if it was a moose," Gagne said.
"Charges against this girl won't bring back the two people who died," said Pauline. "She saw them die, both of them. That's enough of a punishment."
Quebec provincial police said Monday they are still investigating the crash.
