Pedestrians struck down by Montreal taxi still in critical condition

MONTREAL — One of three pedestrians who were struck by a taxi in downtown Montreal remained in hospital in critical condition on Tuesday, police said.

Montreal police spokesman Manuel Couture said the man is 45.

A 25−year−old woman was also taken to hospital, but her injuries were not considered life−threatening.

A 16−year−old girl was hospitalized with minor leg injuries, while a fourth person, a passenger in the taxi, was treated for shock.

Authorities said earlier that four people had been hit and that the 16−year−old was 26.

Police also said initial reports suggest the cab driver had a green light.

The accident occurred just after 3 a.m. Tuesday as the taxi was heading westbound along Rene Levesque Boulevard.
