On Monday, June 24, a surveillance camera captured a terrifying accident on a ferry in Tadoussac, Quebec, where an RV can be seen jumping the ramp and landing approximately 30 feet away on the deck of the departed ferry. The driver of the RV, 40-year-old Eric Belec from Laval, Quebec, later died of his injuries, while a female passenger is in critical condition.
Witnesses are hailing Belec as a hero. He did everything he could to warn people around him by honking at pedestrians and avoiding other vehicles as his RV sped out of control – reportedly due to mechanical difficulties.
The ferry runs between the towns of Tadoussac and Baie-Sainte-Catherine. No one on-board the ferry was injured. Sources: globalnews.ca and CCTV.
