Four Crees from Mistissini were seriously injured in a single-vehicle accident on the Route du Nord on October 31.
The driver lost control of the vehicle at KM126, between the Troilus Mine and Nemaska. Trappers called for assistance in Nemaska after discovering the accident, and the local police was informed, which in turn called the Sûreté du Québec. It took some time for the SQ to get to the scene from Chibougamau.
All four people in the vehicle were seriously hurt. Two were taken to hospital byhelicopter.
