A police spokesman told Granthshala News Ottawa on Thursday that investigators suspect a “family drama” was linked to the deaths.

Neighbors say they are shocked by the accident on a quiet residential road.

Nicolas Chartier said, “When I heard that both girls had died, I was horrified.” “You know it’s kids, it’s hard to watch kids die. I think everyone in the neighborhood was in shock.”

A neighbor said that the father had come to the neighborhood only a few months back.

Rue Dunkirk was closed for investigation but has reopened, Gatineau police said on Thursday.
