Teen charged in deadly crash
A Kitchener woman was killed in a T-bone collision when hit by a car full of teens.
By Jane SIMS, Free Press Reporter, Sun., October 15, 2006
A teenage driver faces impaired driving charges after a carload of West Perth teens collided with a Kitchener woman's car late Friday, killing her.
Perth Ontario Provincial Police said Trista GLIEDT, 23, died at the scene of the T-bone collision at Perth Line 36 and Road 150 between Sebringville and Mitchell.
GLIEDT was travelling east when her car was struck on the passenger side by a car travelling north, police said.
Two 16-year-olds, two 17-year-olds and a 15-year-old, all from West Perth, were taken to Stratford General Hospital.
The 16-year-old driver was charged with impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, criminal negligence causing death and criminal negligence causing bodily harm.
He is to appear in Stratford court November 30. He cannot be identified because of provisions in the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
The crash has rekindled concerns about teens driving drunk, particularly in rural areas.
But Jodi BAKER, principal of Mitchell District high school, said special programs have been presented to students and more are planned this year to discuss the dangers of impaired driving.
"We continue to try and be proactive and provide students with an educational opportunities to know about drinking and driving and the impact of it," BAKER said.
Her school community has been fortunate because it has not had to deal with recent incidents of teens and drunk driving, she said
"Our thoughts and prayers will be with the families."
Pauline NEWTON, president of the London chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving said her organization "is very concerned about the representation of youth in these type of crashes."
A University of Western Ontario study completed for Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada recommends drivers under the age of 21 should have a zero blood-alcohol level.
New drivers are required to have no alcohol in their system until they graduate to a G2 licence.
"We feel young drivers are inexperienced drivers. They're immature, and they're should be a point-zero alcohol tolerance to the age of 21," NEWTON said.
Allan KEITH, regional representative for Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving for Huron, Perth, Middlesex and Elgin counties, said Friday's crash is a sad reminder of why public education on the effects of drunk driving is essential.
"To have something like this happen just pushes us even more to try and get the message out and make people aware these things happen," he said.
"They shouldn't because they are 100-per-cent preventable."
Meanwhile, bad weather was cited as a factor in a crash yesterday that sent a Huron Ontario Provincial Police officer to the London Health Sciences Centre by air ambulance after his cruiser left the road and struck a utility pole about 9 a.m. in northern Huron County.
The officer, Const. Dave MOUNSEY, was on his way to a transport truck rollover near Wroxeter. There were no injuries in the truck crash.
High winds and wet snow made for treacherous driving conditions. Huron Ontario Provincial Police said the road was covered with slush.
MOUNSEY, an eight-year police veteran, is listed in serious condition.

Homicide ruling worries neighbours
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed. November 8, 2006
The death of an elderly Saint Thomas man found in his apartment building elevator has been ruled a homicide, shocking other tenants.
Marcel LACHANCE, 77, was found dead Saturday in the Grand Central apartments at 294 Talbot St. Saint Thomas police originally said he may have died of natural causes.
But last night, investigators said the well-liked man -- known for riding on his trademark scooter -- died as a result of foul play.
"It's left the building in a state of shock," said Kay BAKER, 68, who knew LACHANCE to say hello.
"I quiver. I keep my door locked (and) I never used to. I just stay inside here."
LACHANCE lived on the seventh floor of the 12-storey complex attached to another apartment highrise.
Saint Thomas police were called to the building last Saturday after LACHANCE's body was found in the elevator.
One officer at the scene that day told reporters he believed the man died of natural causes. But it was ruled a homicide after a post-mortem at London's University Hospital yesterday.
LACHANCE moved out of the building a few years ago until his wife died, then returned, said Doreen CAIRNS, who also lives on the seventh floor.
She said he was friendly and had no problems with anyone.
"He was a very nice guy," said CAIRNS, 76, who lives with her husband.
"I used to tease him -- I told him he should get a trailer to go behind his scooter so he could give us women a ride.
"(This) is a scary thought, until they find out who did it."
Police are still investigating and issued a statement last night. A spokesperson declined comment.
"Police are reminding citizens… to be mindful of personal security strategies, such as looking doors…" it read.

ELDER, John Munro, M.D.
John Munro ELDER, husband, father, grandfather and pediatrician to many generations of young Montrealers, died early Tuesday, November 14, 2006, at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal, at the age of 82, after a lengthy battle with dementia, compounded by heart and respiratory illness. He is survived by his wife, Janet, and children Matthew (Jane BAKER,) Katharine (James DEACON) and Stephen (Josee MAURICE,) and son-in-law David POWELL, and eight grandchildren. His daughter Judith died in 2002. John represented the third generation of physicians in the ELDER family, all of whom were educated at McGill University, and prominent staff members of the university's teaching hospitals. He served in the Royal Canadian Artillery in northwest Europe during the Second World War. After the war, John returned to McGill, entering the Medical School in 1947. He married Janet DICKSON/DIXON on December 27, 1949. He graduated from McGill Medical School in 1951 and, after specializing in Pediatrics, entered private practice in 1956. A mong his many positions and achievements, John was medical director of the Mackay Centre (handicapped children), founding director of the Montreal Children's Hospital Adolescent Clinic, director of the Montreal General Hospital Newborn Nursery, a board member of Camp Amy Molson and on the staff of the Children's Service Centre. He is a past president of the Canadian Paediatric Society. His dedication to youth extended to the educational community, and he served several years as a commissioner for the Westmount Protestant School Board. John retired in 1997, but remained beloved by his former patients, some of whom would greet him on his frequent walks in his neighbourhood. His non-professional interests over the years included reading, golf, sailing and, above all, tending to the trees and shrubs at his beloved property at Lake Manitou. He was a dinnertime raconteur who loved the company of all age groups, even the youngest - not surprising, given his chosen profession. The funeral will take place Friday, November 17, 2006, at 2: 00 p.m. at the chapel of Wray Walton Wray, 5610 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal (corner Marcil Avenue). Visitation at the funeral home on Thursday, November 16, from 7 to 9 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation or charities connected with the above-mentioned organizations would be most appreciated.
