Owen Sound trucker involved in fatal crash
Transport truck runs into dump truck
The Canadian Press, Page A2
Burlington, Ontario - A Waterdown, Ontario, man is dead after a crash that spilled animal waste across Highway 6 and closed sections of the road for most of Thursday.
Paul McARTHUR, 38, died instantly when a transport truck collided with a dump truck at about 2 a.m., police said.
Cleanup crews spent more than 15 hours removing animal matter from the heavily travelled road, which didn't fully reopen until 4: 45 p.m.
"It is just a mess," provincial police Insp. Robin McELARY- DOWNER said after leaving the scene.
The dump truck was travelling north on Highway 6 when it ran out of gas on a hill south of Highway 5, McELARY- DOWNER said.
A mobile truck service run by McARTHUR arrived to help the truck stranded in the right lane.
McARTHUR was looking at the engine and had just told the driver to try the ignition when a tractor-trailer slammed into the back of the dump truck, killing McARTHUR, McELARY- DOWNER said.
The driver of the dump truck, Mike NINIJOHN, 22, of Waterdown, suffered minor injuries that didn't require medical attention.
The transport truck driver, John THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, 66, of Owen Sound also suffered minor injuries.
McELARY- DOWNER said investigators are still trying to determine if the dump truck had its caution lights on and why the transport truck didn't see it.
No charges have been laid, but the investigation is continuing.

McLELLAN, Angus Ronald
Born April 18, 1924 in Glasgow, Scotland. Died March 1st, 2005 in Victoria, British Columbia after an eight year struggle with the effects of a stroke. Only child of the late Helen Stewart and Angus McLELLAN Sr. The family immigrated to Toronto when Angus was a child. He grew up in East End Toronto. Most beloved husband of Patricia. Also survived by Pat's brother Brian DOWNES, his wife Jenny and their children Sam and Lucy in England; cousin Archie McGUGAN and Elizabeth in Victoria, cousins in Scotland and Pat's extended family of Aunts and cousins in England, Toronto and India.
To correct a stammer (that's another story!), Angus applied to and was accepted by at the Lorne Greene Academy of Radio Arts in Toronto. He was an early graduate. He became head Writer for Greene's daily newscasts on CKEY when it was the #1 station in Toronto. After CKEY, Angus was one of the founders of the television station in North Bay, Ontario
In the mid-'50's Angus moved to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio News in Toronto. He had found his niche in broadcasting! He originated Sunday Morning Magazine and The World At Six (and Eight) and Radio News' national coverage of many federal elections. He also did a stint as Executive Producer of Specials for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television News, responsible at the time for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Watergate coverage. He was briefly Executive Producer of W5 for CTV. Radio remained his real love and he returned to it for the rest of his working life in Toronto until he and Pat moved to Victoria in 1982.
He was a very strong supporter of public broadcasting and of equality and social justice for all. He considered his documentary on the American singer Paul Robeson one of the highlights of his career along with his two-hour documentary and analysis at the end of the Viet Nam war.
No service and no flowers by Angus's very specific request. Donations may be made to Doctors Without Borders, #402 - 720 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, Ontario. M5S 2T9 or Mount Saint Mary Hospital, 861 Fairfield Road, Victoria, British Columbia V8V 5A9.
A Memorial Tea will be held on Thursday, March 10th, 2005 at 2.00 pm at First Memorial Funeral Services, 4725 Falaise Drive, Victoria, British Columbia V8Y 1B4.
