ST-CUTHBERT, Que. — Traffic was snarled for hours near here after several chunks of concrete tumbled from a Quebec highway into a river below.
The result was a 30 cm hole in the roadway that, which although no one was injured, blocked Hwy. 40 about 80 kilometres northeast of Montreal.
It was the second such incident in the past 13 months. In June of last year, Gilbert Vinson was killed when his car was crushed by 70-tonne concrete beams that fell from Hwy. 15 in Laval.
