The driver of the vehicle, a man in his 40s, was also injured in the swerve, but we do not fear for his life (archives).
A woman in her thirties, originally from Sept-Îles, died in a swerve that occurred in Schefferville during the night from Friday to Saturday.
The driver, who was traveling westbound on Route de la Mine, reportedly veered off the road in steep terrain.
In the swerve, the passenger suffered serious injuries. He was pronounced dead at a medical facility.
The driver, a man in his 40s, was also seriously injured and transported to the same medical facility, but there are no fears for his life, says the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).
The auxiliary police officers of the SQ were called to the scene around 1:30 a.m.
A blood sample was taken from the driver since alcohol and speed could have played a role in the accident, according to the SQ. An investigation has been launched.
