I was hoping you would have some information on your blog about an accident that happened on Sunday Aug 7 around 3.30pm. As we were passing the HWY20 going WEest there was a 18 wheeler in the middle lane with a man lying on top of it... I think he jumped fromt he overpass. There doesn't seem to be any reports about the accident and I was wondering why? Do you have any info as to what happened, I have tried looking on the net but even the pics that were posted/uploaded on Montreal CBC NEWS by passerbyers were deleted. Thanks sorry to write all this here, could not find your contact info :)
