Police believe alcohol could have been a factor in a fatal car accident in the town of Saint-Simon in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region that left one passenger dead.
According to the Sûreté du Québec, a vehicle carrying three men on Saint-Simon Road rolled into a ditch after the 20-year-old driver lost control.
A 65-year-old passenger was severely injured and died in hospital a few hours later.
A blood sample was obtained from the driver to determine if alcohol may have been a factor in the accident, and he could face criminal charges, said SQ spokesperson Christine Coulombe.
Saint-Simon Road was closed to traffic following the accident to allow SQ officers to inspect the scene, but has been reopened.
