A woman has died from her injuries after she became pinned between a pickup truck and a wall last week at a Montreal self-storage facility. The accident happened Tuesday afternoon at Depotium Mini Warehouse at 3555 Crémazie Blvd. E., according to sources.
When paramedics arrived at the scene, the woman, described as being in her 40s, was in critical condition with serious injuries to her upper body. She was rushed to the hospital where she died overnight. Paramedics treated a second person at the scene, sources reported.
The accident was likely caused by a false maneuver or mechanical issue, according to Sylvain Lafrance, a spokesperson for Urgences-santé, the emergency-medical service that responded.
Depotium Mini operates seven locations in Quebec City. In addition to self-storage, it also provides mobile storage and moving services.
