MONTREAL - A sister of Quebecor president Pierre Karl Peladeau is dead after the car she was travelling in plunged into a lake.

The Quebec media baron's company issued a statement today confirming the death of 55-year-old Isabelle Peladeau.

Quebec provincial police say she was a passenger in the car when the driver lost control late Saturday afternoon in Saint-Hippolyte, north of Montreal.

Police say the driver was attempting to enter a private residence when the accident occurred in icy conditions.

The driver survived.
