A 32-year old driver from Athelstan will face charges of dangerous driving causing death and drinking and driving.
This after a 72-year old male pedestrian was killed Saturday evening after a violent high-speed accident in Huntingdon.
At around 7:00 P.M. a driver hit the pedestrian and three other parked vehicles on Quebec Route 138.
Sûrete du Québec spokesperson Claude Denis said the death of the pedestrian was confirmed on scene.
Denis said the suspect's car had been spotted by SQ officers earlier exceeding the speed limit.
The officers, who were driving in the opposite direction on Route 138, turned around to catch the suspect but lost sight of the driver.
Denis said there was no chase involving police.
The collision happened before police arrived.
The driver was taken to hospital where he underwent surgery.
Charges will be laid by telephone in hospital.
