A driver was arrested by a Sûreté du Québec patrol officer less than two hours after hitting a road worker on Picanoc Road in Otter Lake on Monday afternoon.
According to the SQ, the suspect didn’t stop to assist the victim who was working on a construction site. Following the assessment by paramedics, the victim was not transported to a hospital.
The suspect is a 57-year-old man from Otter Lake with no prior criminal record. He was released at the scene after promising to appear in court. He could face charges of “hit-and-run causing bodily harm”, “assault with a weapon” and “assault”.
The investigation showed that the driver’s impatience and aggressiveness were the causes of the event.
