The driver of a vehicle travelling westbound on a Cote-Nord mine road swerved off the roadway.
In the swerve, the passenger, a woman in her thirties from the Sept-Îles area, suffered serious injuries and was later pronounced dead in a health facility.
The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) officers of the Caniapiscau MRC were called to the scene around 1:30 a.m.
The driver, a man in his forties, was injured and transported to the same health facility, but his life is not in danger.
A blood sample was taken from the driver. According to the SQ, alcohol and speed may have played a role in the accident.
