Bad road conditions were the cause of the accident that caused the death of a cyclist.

The poor condition of the roadway caused the death of cyclist Estelle Leblanc in the Township of Roxton on October 9, concludes the coroner.

According to Dr. Jean Brochu, the 60-year-old from Granby fell after rolling through a hole or possibly cracks. Two holes of at least 20 centimeters and a few centimeters deep were also observed at the scene of the accident.

A van, which was trying to pass it, could not avoid it. In his report, the coroner describes that witnesses saw the vehicle attempt to swerve into the left lane, but the right front wheel rolled over the cyclist's head.

Still according to the coroner, the weather conditions, visibility, signage and the condition of the people and vehicles involved were in no way involved in explaining this accident. Dr. Brochu recalls that Estelle Leblanc was also a seasoned cyclist in excellent physical shape.

Estelle Leblanc was found dead at the scene of the drama, victim of a severe craniocerebral trauma secondary to a road accident. The coroner qualifies the death as accidental.

In his report, Dr. Brochu recommends that the Ministère des Transports du Québec review the repair protocol for the pavement on Route 139 where the accident occurred, in addition to making the necessary corrections to prevent #x27;such an event happens again.
