Freak crash kills garage owner
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter
A London mechanic, who recently realized his dream of opening an automotive shop, was killed in a freak accident last night in his shop.
Kifah DARWISH, 31, died when a car being moved inside the garage went out of control and crushed him through a wall, police said.
The accident happened shortly after 6: 30 p.m. at Darwish's Speedy Fix Automotive at 1115 Brydges St.
DARWISH, who drove a taxi by night and worked in the new auto shop during the day, was killed instantly when the car, driven by a customer, lurched forward and slammed through the wall, police said.
"This is being treated as an accident," said Sgt. Bill CHANTLER.
witnesses: to the grisly collision, and the man who was driving the vehicle before it struck DARWISH, were visibly shattered as police arrived.
The man whom onlookers described as the driver fell to his knees in the dusty yard as another man who saw the collision consoled him.
As word of DARWISH's death spread, Friends, family and fellow taxi drivers flocked to the tiny shop to offer their condolences.
They described a hard-working man who, after six years in Canada, finally got immigration status earlier this year.
DARWISH, who lived in Saudi Arabia and India before moving to Canada, recently flew to Jordan to get married, Friends said.
He was trying to get his Jordanian wife's papers in order so she could join him in London this fall, said his roommate, Amin ISMAIL.
"Things were just starting to pick up for him," said ISMAIL, his eyes brimming with tears.
"He just got his papers, he just got married, he just bought his first cab, he just opened the shop."
ISMAIL, who had spoken to DARWISH hours before his death, described his friend as a "straight-up, incredibly hard-working" guy who was well-liked.
"He's working two jobs, trying to save up as much money as he can, so he can bring his wife here," ISMAIL said.
"She's still in Jordan. She's still waiting for him," he said.
Firas ELDANY, a friend of DARWISH's, said he was an outgoing man who loved chatting with customers and didn't even want to take payment when he fixed their cars.
"I just came by today for a tuneup and he said, 'No, no, don't worry (about payment,') ELDANY said.
"This is just not right."
As one of DARWISH's cousins began phoning family overseas to tell them of the tragedy, police took lengthy statements from emotional employees and Friends who witnessed the accident.
Labour Ministry officials, who investigate workplace deaths, were called to the scene, but ruled it wasn't a labour incident, police said.
Police were still investigating last night.
