Quebec Provincial Police say a stretch of Highway 50 between Buckingham and Thurso is closed following a serious collision.
An eastbound vehicle collided with a tractor trailer at around 9:45 a.m. Friday. Police say it appears the eastbound vehicle had, for reasons under investigation, left its lane and struck the trailer. The driver, a man in his 20s, suffered life-threatening injuries.
Highway 50 is closed in both directions between Doherty Rd. and Highway 317, north of Thurso.
Police could not say when the highway might reopen.
