A video posted to Facebook this morning showed the aftermath of a three-vehicle collision on Route 158 in Joliette, 80 km northeast of Montreal.

The video, posted by Dave Landry just after 11 am, shows billowing and dark smoke rising from a truck engulfed in flames.

Quebec 511 confirmed in a tweet that the three-vehicle collision set two cars ablaze and that boulevard de l’Industrie was closed down as a result.

Police stopped traffic in both directions and the site was cleaned up while an investigation was conducted.
