Cop Recklessly Speeds at 122 kph and Kills 5-yr-old Child, Doesn’t Get Charged


The family of a boy killed by a speeding SQ officer in Longueuil is devastated no charges will be laid and they want an explanation.

The cop was speeding at 122 kph.  The speed limit was only 50 kph. He was not responding to a call and did not have his lights on.

The family of a five-year-old boy is considering its legal options upon learning that a police officer will not be charged after his unmarked cruiser slammed into their car, killing the child.


The boy died four days after an unmarked Surete du Quebec cruiser slammed into his father’s car as it was making a left-hand turn on a residential street in Longeuil in February.

Investigators with Montreal Police, the force that took over the investigation, informed the family last week that the officer will not face charges, even though he was speeding at the time of the collision.

The officer was travelling 122 km/h right before the accident and tried to slam on the brakes, investigators told the boy’s family.

The cruiser hit the family’s car at a speed of 90 km/h.

The speed limit on the street was 50 km/h.

The officer was not responding to a call or to an emergency, CTV Montreal’s Maya Johnson reported Wednesday.

The Crown does not have to give its reasoning when it decides not to lay charges.

The boy’s parents did not want to speak to the media on Wednesday.

5-yr-old Nicolas Thorne Belance was described by his family and community as an “angel” and “full of life.”

However, relatives said they are outraged, and believe that a civilian would have been charged in the case, Johnson reported.
