A truck driver is dead after an incident on Wednesday at the Port of Montreal.

"I can confirm that there has been an accident on one of the terminals," said Montreal Port Authority Communications Director Renée Larouche.

In a notice to its members, the Syndicat des débardeurs du port de Montréal SCFP local 375 confirmed that two truck drivers were involved in an incident at the Cast terminal.

"The death of one truck driver was confirmed," the message states. "We would like to extend our sympathies to their family and friends."
