Deadly two days on our roads
Total of four people die in collisions Monday morning and Sunday
By Bill HENRY, Tuesday, October 25, 2005, Page A1
Four people died in two highway collisions, one near Wiarton early Monday and another at Burgoyne Sunday.
The two unrelated collisions both involved three vehicles and happened at controlled intersections. Two people died in each.
Highway 6 was closed for several hours Monday morning as police diverted traffic around the intersection of Grey Road 17 where a farm tractor, pickup truck and a car were all involved in a collision that killed two people at about 6: 30 a.m., Bruce Peninsula Ontario Provincial Police said.
Steven McCARTNEY, 43, of Owen Sound, the driver of the truck, and his passenger Jeremy McCARTNEY, 27, of Hepworth, were both pronounced dead at the collision scene two kilometres south of Wiarton.
South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Const. Dave MEYER said it was raining and still dark when the crash happened.
The farm tractor was travelling north along the side of the road. The pickup truck collided with the side of the tractor and came to a stop upside down in the northbound lane.
Soon after, a car heading north collided with the truck and ended up in the west ditch. The 19-year-old driver, of Ayton, was in serious condition in hospital and a passenger was also injured. Their names had not been released Monday evening because next of kin had to be notified, MEYER said.
The tractor driver was not injured.
At about 5 p.m. Sunday at Burgoyne, two Windsor women who were passengers in a Jaguar were killed and three other people injured when the Jag struck a truck and then a van at the junction of Bruce Road 17 and Bruce Road 3.
The pickup truck was heading east on Road 17 and did not completely stop at the intersection. It collided with the Jag heading south on Road 3, which then struck the van, Saugeen Shores Police said in a news release.
Both the pickup driver, Christopher LEE, and passenger Helena LEE of Brampton were uninjured.
The driver of the Jaguar, Marlene LANCASTER, 56, of Windsor, was taken to hospital in Owen Sound with non life-threatening injuries. One passenger, Leona ROBERTS, 77, of LaSalle, was pronounced dead at the scene. Another passenger, Flora ASSELTINE, 84, of Windsor was taken to hospital in Southampton and pronounced dead shortly after.
A nine-month-old infant in the van was in a car seat and was not injured.
Lisa COPPING, 24, of Paisley, the driver of the van, was treated for injuries at Chesley hospital.
A female passenger, Holly BARBE, 50, of Port Elgin was taken first to Chesley hospital, then airlifted to London with major but not life-threatening injuries.
The collision was still under investigation Monday and there were no charges.

LAMBERTS, 63, stage's mirth master
By Robert CREW, Arts Writer
He was a comic genius with a troubled soul, a man able to leave a whole theatre helpless with laughter.
Toronto-born Heath LAMBERTS, for many years a mainstay at the Shaw Festival, died early yesterday in a Pittsburgh hospital.
"He was a genius," said Andrew Paul, artistic director of the Pittsburgh Irish and Classical Theatre. "I don't use that word lightly. There are very few people that have the sort of skills he has as a comedic actor and a clown."
LAMBERTS had been in remission after being diagnosed with cancer about five years ago, but had a recurrence recently and the cancer had spread to his vital organs, said Paul.
At one time LAMBERTS was, without a doubt, Canada's favourite farceur. His 12 seasons at the Shaw Festival between 1974 and 1985 were filled with wildly successful productions of light fare such as One for the Pot, Tons of Money and A Flea in Her Ear.
An actor of bustling energy and razor-sharp timing, his supreme comic gifts won him a Dora Award in 1981 for his performance as Pseudolus in a Toronto production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.
But it was a production of Cyrano de Bergerac, staged at the Shaw in 1982 and 1983 and revived at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in 1985, that confirmed that his talents extended far deeper.
His deeply romantic Cyrano made you laugh then made you cry, finally breaking your heart. It won him his second Dora.
"This is one occasion where you can use the phrase 'God-given,'" Barry MacGREGOR, who acted with LAMBERTS on many occasions, said of LAMBERTS yesterday.
"He was brilliant at making people laugh but was sometimes impossible to work with. He had a lot of demons and didn't suffer fools gladly.
"I think he expected anyone who was working with him to have the same intense concentration that he had."
LAMBERTS was a practising Buddhist for many years, restlessly seeking for self-knowledge and enlightenment. Media interviews with him were volatile and unpredictable.
Born James LANCASTER in 1941, LAMBERTS began his career as a boy soprano with the Toronto Opera Company. He was a member of the first class (along with Martha Henry and Diana Leblanc) at the newly opened National Theatre School in Montreal in 1960.
Jim SSAINTWRENCE was a childhood friend who knew LAMBERTS from the days that they were both boy sopranos.
"He prided himself that he never had another job other than acting," he said.
After graduating in 1963 and winning the Toronto Telegram Award for Most Promising Newcomer, he joined the Stratford Festival, winning two Guthrie Awards.
In addition to his acclaimed work at the Shaw Festival, he excelled in a number of high-profile roles at the Vancouver Playhouse in the late 1970s.
The parting with the Shaw Festival was less than happy but LAMBERTS then made a number of appearances in Toronto, notably in David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross in 1987 and a revival of One for the Pot in 1996. The latter won him his third Dora.
LAMBERTS was named to the Order of Canada in 1987.
He also had a successful run on Broadway in the Disney production Beauty and the Beast. in the mid-1990s. He then starred alongside Sarah Jessica Parker in the 1996-7 New York production of Once Upon a Mattress.
LAMBERTS' career had slowed over the last few years. He busied himself with supporting comedic roles that didn't interfere with his cancer treatments.
He had moved to Pittsburgh a few years ago because he was in a relationship with a woman there, and because of the health care available, said Paul.
Jennifer PHIPPS, who performed with LAMBERTS in several productions at the Shaw Festival, remembered him as a "marvellous, wonderful comic.
"I always thought he was extraordinarily funny."
Many, many thousands of theatregoers would agree.
