Seven people taken to hospital after car burns red light; hits cars and pedestrians

Seven people were taken to hospital Sunday after a car reportedly ran a red light, struck two pedestrians and then hit two cars in Cote-des-Neiges.

The black Pontiac, carrying a 76-year old woman and a 90-year old man, ran the red light at the intersection of Van Horne Avenue and Côte-des-Neiges Road.

Injuries are said to be minor.

Police are investigating, but it's not clear whether charges will be laid.

    With all the restrictions that keep getting suggested or added to young drivers; I think it's time to start adding some to older drivers as well. The sad thing is that young drivers often kill themselves but older drivers often cause damage during the middle of the day.

    What do they mean, not clear if charges will be laid?
    Do they just give the driver a slap on the wrist and tell the driver not to do it again?

    It seems that here in Montreal you can do anything on the roads and it is perfectly ok.
    Whoever was the driver hast to be charged. Running a red light for whatever reason is against the law and so is hitting people and cars.

      @Joe Mr. Joe

      police are investigating if this was a accident or she ran the light knowing that its red, if this was a accident then of Corse there is no criminal charges laid... they can give her a couple tickets but that's it.... but that's for sure it's time to start adding some more restrictions to older drivers

    More of these will happen if there is no re-testing for 70 plus drivers...report was vague to who was driving the car.
