Man hurt in road rage incident still in serious condition

Suspect released

The condition of the man injured in the road rage incident on the Charles-de-Gaulle Bridge Wednesday is still serious.

He’s been transferred to the Traumatic Brain Injury Centre at the Montreal General.

At around 2 PM Wednesday, Patrice Gérard, 36, was involved in an accident with another motorist on the bridge, near Terrebone.

The two got into an argument and Gérard was knocked out when the other 33-year-old driver punched him in the face.

The Sureté du Québec says that man was released but will appear in Joliette court on August 8.

“The charges that the suspect faces are assault causing bodily harm and dangerous driving,” Gino Paré spokesperson for the SQ said.

Gérard will also be interrogated by police when his condition is stable. He may also face charges.

Paré says around a dozen witnesses have been questioned and some are still coming forward.
