Quebec Woman Accused of Impaired Driving


Thirty-one year old Danie Rousseau faces serious charges in connection to a motor-vehicle accident that injured at least six people, including children on December 5th, 2012 in Saint-Étienne on the south shore of Québec.

The woman from Saint-Agapit, appeared on Wednesday afternoon at the justice building of Québec to face the six charges for impaired driving, causing bodily harm.

Three of the injured people were children.

The accident, involving four vehicles, took place on route 116 in Saint-Étienne.

The vehicle of the accused suddenly veered into the opposite lane, striking the front of the first vehicle, at a height of 1209, on the main road.

The vehicle that followed crashed into the first two and the fourth vehicle crashed into the three others.

According to the police in Lévis, two young children less than six years old, were thrown into the vehicle of the accused during the accident.  One of the children was thrown into the passenger seat and the other into the back seat of the vehicle.

The eight people involved in the collision were taken to the Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis to be treated.

Investigators of the Sûreté du Québec were called to the scene to shed light on the accident.

A blood sample was taken from the driver at fault, which led to criminal charges.

The woman, who has no criminal record, was released Wednesday on bail of $1,000.

She doesn’t have the right to consume alcohol or to be seen in bars and has lost her privilege to drive.

Rousseau will return to court on May 23rd, 2013.
