Crash shatters 2 families
Newmarket, Huntsville couples killed
One family was moving west, the other returning
By Bob MITCHELL and Tamara CHERRY, Staff Reporters
Two Ontario couples en route to fresh starts in their lives -- one moving out west, the other returning -- met tragedy instead when their vehicles collided on a northern highway. Five people were killed.
Shawna BAKOS- BIANCHI, 32, and her husband, David BIANCHI, 34, were moving back from Winnipeg to Newmarket to await the arrival in three weeks of their second child.
Huntsville residents Blair PALADICHUK, 41, and Sandy FELLER- PALADICHUK, 46, were heading to hotel jobs in the northern Saskatchewan town of La Ronge.
They were killed on Highway 17 near White River last Sunday when their pickup collided with an sport utility vehicle driven by BAKOS- BIANCHI, who died in the accident along with her 1½-year-old daughter, Victoria, and her mother, Joan BAKOS, 64.
David BIANCHI, 34, who was driving ahead of his family in a U-Haul filled with their belongings, discovered the terrible scene moments after seeing dust and dirt flying into the dusk sky in the rear-view mirror of his rented vehicle.
"David stopped the vehicle and ran back and found them. I don't think there are any words that can describe what he saw or felt," BIANCHI's uncle, Ciro LUPO, said yesterday.
"This is something that's going to take a long time for everybody to get over. Oh God. It's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. A lot worse."
Originally from Scarborough, the couple married in May 2003 and moved to Winnipeg soon after when BAKOS- BIANCHI was transferred there by General Motors, LUPO said, adding her husband is a self-employed painter.
"She had taken maternity leave and they decided to move back to Ontario so they could be close to their family and even bought a home right next door to (her parents) Joan and Vic," LUPO said.
"Vic is an only child so he has nobody now. He's lost his wife, his daughter and his granddaughter."
The Paladichuks were a close couple as well, relatives say.
"Blair was a chef. Sandy ran hotels and resorts," PALADICHUK's sister, Kristin INGRAHAM, said from her parents' home in St. Catharines.
"They worked together; they did absolutely everything together."
They were regarded as "very much free spirits," INGRAHAM said, passing on words from her parents. "They were not big-city Toronto people at all. They were just a couple who were truly in love."
INGRAHAM said her family has been under a lot of stress since the tragedy. Her parents are devastated.
"My parents loved her as much as they loved him."
The couple married about 12 years ago, each bringing two children from previous relationships. They spent a few years living in the Yukon before moving to a home just outside Algonquin Park.
The decision to move out west didn't come easily, as it meant PALADICHUK would have to leave INGRAHAM, his only sibling, as she battled cancer.
"He was just kind of torn because I have cancer and he was really against it (the move,)" INGRAHAM said. "I'm really quite sick and he really didn't want to leave because I'm right between my treatments. He was very involved in my kids' lives."
However, with his wife's family in Edmonton, the couple decided to move to be closer to them.
"They kind of went back and forth to decide whether or not to fly," INGRAHAM said. "They decided to drive because they thought that it would be more of an adventure."
But not without stopping in St. Catharines to spend a week with PALADICHUK's family.
"It was just a nice week. The whole family was together and we went out for dinners, we had barbecues," INGRAHAM said, adding the family celebrated FELLER- PALADICHUK's 46th birthday during their visit.
"They had left here at 8 o'clock Sunday morning and I guess the accident happened exactly 12 hours later. We were waiting for them to call (that night) and we never got the call."
It wasn't until the following afternoon that they got word on the couple's fate.
FELLER- PALADICHUK was pronounced dead at the scene, they were told, while PALADICHUK held on for a while longer before being pronounced dead in hospital.
Staff Sgt. Dan DAWSON of the Ontario Provincial Police's Superior East detachment in Wawa said their investigation indicates that BAKOS- BIANCHI was driving when she suddenly slid onto the gravel shoulder.
"They were heading south on Highway 17 and she only was on the shoulder momentarily but then shot across into the path of the northbound pickup," DAWSON said.
"We have no idea what caused it. We don't know whether something distracted her. There was nothing mechanically wrong with either vehicle.
"No witnesses: survived the crash so we'll probably never know what happened."
Police said everybody involved was wearing seat belts and the child was strapped in a car seat.
"But it wouldn't have mattered considering the severity of the collision because nobody could have survived," DAWSON said. "Both vehicles were travelling at about the posted highway speed of 90 km/h and visibility was clear.
"Other than the husband's vehicle, they were the only vehicles on the road at that time."
Family members said they've learned their loved ones had initially stopped in White River to get some gas, but it was too busy so they decided to drive another 90 kilometres to Wawa where they were going to spend the night.
"Shawna's last day of work was Friday and they left on Saturday afternoon," LUPO said.
"After stopping at White River, they had only been on the road for about five or six kilometres when the crash happened.
"If you've ever driven up north, it doesn't take a lot to go onto the gravel. It's so easy to over-correct. I suspect that's what happened."
Once they got the call, LUPO and two other uncles immediately drove to Wawa to be with BIANCHI.
"He was all alone and we didn't want him to have to deal with the horrific events all on his own," LUPO said.
"I can't say enough about the people and the community of Wawa.
"Father Trevor (SCARFONE) stayed with David in a local church to comfort him until we got there. Everybody we dealt with was amazing, from Ontario Provincial Police officer Adam GOODLETT to the people who run the Wawa Motor Inn, who didn't charge us for the room."
Friends and family can attend visitation tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Chapel Ridge Funeral Home on Woodbine Ave. in Markham.
Funeral mass is at 11: 30 a.m. Saturday at Saint_John Chrysostom Catholic Church on Ontario St. in Newmarket with interment at Holy Cross Cemetery.
