A 29-year-old man could face a charge of dangerous driving causing death after he was involved in a crash with a motorcycle that killed a father of two in Gatineau on Tuesday night, police said.
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.
His family said police have released few details about the crash.
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.
