A 28-year-old man is dead after a single car crash in Gatineau's Hull sector overnight Tuesday.

Gatineau Police say the man's car left Boulevard de Plateau just before 1am Tuesday morning and struck the median.

The driver was the lone person in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

Police believe speed may have been a factor in the collision.

The name of the victim has not been released.

Boulevard de Plateau is closed near Saint-Raymond while police investigate.

This is thethird fatal accident of the year in Gatineau.
