The trucker crossed the median and the westbound lanes, ending up in a ditch, a Sûreté du Québec spokesperson said..
“Fortunately, the truck did not collide with any other vehicles. However, the man still had serious injuries.”
Westbound Highway 30 was closed between Chemin de la Haute-Rivière in Châteauguay and Rue de la Gare in Léry for an indefinite period.
The truck was carrying a load of batteries. There were no chemical spills other than fuel from the truck’s gas tank.
Alcohol does not seem to have been a factor in the accident, police said.
