Quebec Coroner Jean Brochu hopes his latest report into a fatal crash in 2016 involving a ride-sharing service will raise awareness about the dangers of getting into a stranger's car — but his report stops short of making any recommendations to the Quebec government.
"I just wanted to make sure that people are aware that with all these enterprises of ride-sharing, there is absolutely no guarantee that things will go well," Brochu said.
Brochu's report examined a collision that occurred on Highway 40 between Ottawa and Montreal. It claimed the life of Katy Torres, a 30-year-old PhD student who was in the passenger seat of a vehicle that swerved into on-coming traffic and slammed into a van.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/should-car-inspections-be-mandatory-in-quebec-1.4532679
