L'Ange-Gardien man injured in explosion

A 22-year-old man is recovering from serious injuries to his face and arm following an explosion on Lauzon Road in L'Ange-Gardien.

Police say the man had stored gas cans in the trunk of his vehicle on Saturday; around 10 p.m., he went back to his car to get his cell phone, but it was dark, so he used his lighter as a flashlight.

That's when the gasoline fumes ignited.

The man's injuries are not life-threatening.
