Gatineau driver faces charge in fatal crash with motorcycle
Pascal Lafleur, 36, of Val-des-Monts killed when motorcycle collided with car Tuesday night
Pascal Lafleur, 36, was killed when his motorcycle collided head-on with a car on Chemin des Terres and Montée Paiement around 9:45 p.m.
His family said in a statement Wednesday that he was a husband and father of two young children.
"Pascal was a loving father and generous husband," the statement said in French. "He loved the outdoors, especially while riding his motorcycle. He leaves a wife, his two angels aged three and five, an older brother and his parents in mourning."
Lafleur, from Val-des-Monts, was the manager of the tire centre at Costco.
Gatineau police said that the driver of the car was treated for minor injuries and later released from hospital.
The crash in Gatineau follows two recent motorcycle crashes in Ottawa.
On Tuesday morning, a 55-year-old man was taken to hospital after crashing his motorcycle into a guardrail on Highway 174.
On Monday night, a 23-year old man was taken to hospital in critical condition after his motorcycle crashed into a construction barrier on Highway 417 near the Aviation Parkway.
