SQ officer dead after being struck by car
A 33 year old Sûreté du Québec police officer has died of injuries he sustained while on patrol in Bois-des-Filion Saturday afternoon.
Donovan Lagrange was struck and killed by a motorist on the Autoroute 640 as he approached a vehicle that he had pulled over for speeding.
The driver may face charges.
In August, Quebec’s “Move Over” law came into effect requiring motorists to change lanes when approaching emergency vehicles are stopped.
Lagrange is the second police officer to be killed in the line of duty in the past two weeks.
Last month a Sûreté du Québec police officer was killed when she lost control of her patrol car while responding to an emergency near Rawdon.
