A Gatineau teen had all four of her limbs amputated after being electrocuted in a horrific accident near Luskville over the holidays.
Late on Christmas Eve, 18-year-old Sabryna Mongeon was driving back to Gatineau from her mother’s home in Luskville. To avoid the highway, she took side roads.
“She [went] to see some friends in Gatineau,” explained Mongeon’s older sister Samantha. “In the back road, she lost control of her car.”
Sabryna struck a hydro pole near the corner of chemin de Crégheur and chemin de la Butte, causing the wires to fall on her car. Fearing that the vehicle would catch fire, she attempted to get out and was electrocuted with 14,500 volts.
