3 children killed, 7 people injured in Montérégie tractor incident

Three children have died and three others were seriously hurt in a tractor incident in a small community in Quebec’s Montérégie region Wednesday evening.

Quebec provincial police say the tractor had been transporting 10 people — six children and four adults — in its front shovel. Two adults are in critical condition, and two other adults were lightly injured. 

Police say for a reason they have yet to determine, the 10 passengers fell from the shovel and were struck by the tractor at around 7 p.m. local time Wednesday. They say no other vehicle was involved.

The driver has been arrested and is expected to appear in court in Granby, Que., later today. Sgt. Ingrid Asselin, a spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec, said alcohol may have been involved.

The incident happened in Notre-Dame-de-Stanbridge, about 75 kilometres southeast of Montreal.

Quebec provincial police are investigating.
