Taxi hits man in St-Michel

According to this account, a young guy got off a bus and then, while crossing the street in front of the bus, a passing taxi knocked him down. I was interested mostly in the coda: “La scène a été protégée une partie de la matinée dans l’attente du bilan de la victime, mais en raison de son probable rétablissement, la scène a été levée et l’avenue a été rouverte.”

So, if the guy had died, the scene would be treated as a crime scene, but since he’s expected to recover, they reopened the road to regular traffic. I didn’t quite realize accident scene analysis was tied in quite that way to whether people lived or died.
