A man in his seventies suffered serious injuries after being hit by a vehicle involved in an accident.

The person arrested by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) spent the night behind bars and is expected to appear at the Drummondville courthouse on Tuesday. He could be charged with assault and dangerous driving.

The accident happened last Saturday just before 9 p.m. at the intersection of Saint-Joseph and Saint-Alphonse streets. A driver is said to have ignored the red light and hit a car, which then hit the 73-year-old pedestrian. However, according to the SQ, the man’s life would be out of danger.
