1 teenager killed, 3 seriously injured in an accident near Thurso, Quebec.

A 16-year-old girl was killed and three other teenage boys were injured Sunday in a crash following what police said was a street race in Lochaber, Que., east of Gatineau.

Emergency vehicles were called on the way to 4e Rang du Gore shortly before 5 p.m., the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) told Radio-Canada.

Police say two vehicles were racing when one vehicle left the road and ran into a large ravine. The driver and three passengers were rushed to hospital with serious injuries, SQ spokesman Nicolas Scholtus said.

Police said Monday morning that a 16-year-old girl who was a passenger had died. They did not release his name.

Two of the other people in the vehicle, including the 17-year-old driver, are in stable condition and the fourth was released from hospital, according to the SQ late Monday morning.

Police said they spoke to the driver of the second vehicle, 18, who was not injured. Neither did their two passengers.

Thurso is approximately 50 kilometers northeast of downtown Ottawa.
