Police lay drunk-driving charge as mother killed while jogging
A Family Shattered Forever
By Oliver MOORE and Nicole O'REILLY, with a report from Christie BLATCHFORD, Page A1
A mother of four young children was run down and killed while jogging near her Richmond Hill home in an incident police are blaming on drunk driving.
Terri CALLAWAY was out for her usual evening run through the subdivisions near Lake Wilcox on Tuesday when a speeding station wagon jumped the curb and struck her, police say.
The vehicle was travelling well over the speed limit when it hit Ms. CALLAWAY, York Regional Police Constable Michael KASSAY said. She died at the scene and a man was arrested shortly after.
Ms. CALLAWAY's husband, Gareth, said at the family home last night that the driver was "not worth wasting any emotion on." He added that he'd given a picture of their children to the police, asking that they pass it to the driver. "In certain respects, it would be nice if he lived to be 95 and woke up every morning and gets to see the photograph," he said in an interview.
After striking the 37-year-old woman, the vehicle smashed into a parked car and toppled a concrete light pole. Shattered glass was strewn around the scene yesterday and tire skid marks stretched across one of the lawns.
The case, Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino said last night, "so vivid and so tragic," perfectly illustrates that "whether at the end of a gun or the hood of a car, the end result" is often the same.
"It's a calculated decision to drink or use drugs and drive," he told The Globe and Mail in a telephone interview, "as much as putting a gun on your belt and going to shoot someone, but this is something we have absolute control over. We can't blame anybody, we can't pass off the responsibility. We choose to do it. And we have to choose to get serious about stopping it."
According to people living nearby, the man arrested after the crash lived only half a kilometre away.
Ms. CALLAWAY was on the sidewalk when she was hit, running her normal route at approximately 8: 45 at night. She was gone longer than usual but her husband hadn't begun to worry, not even when he saw flashing lights from his backyard. Curious, he eventually asked a neighbour to watch his children so he could find out what was happening.
He was kept away from the scene by police, who, after learning his identity, asked him about his wife's appearance and the clothing she had been wearing. Only then did he begin to realize the seriousness of the situation.
People on Ms. CALLAWAY's street near Yonge Street and Bloomington Road described it as a recently built but tightly knit subdivision.
The couple moved into the area when it was built, roughly five or six years ago. Their children -- nine-year-old Dylan, Rachel, who turns 8 next week, six-year-old Matthew and three-year-old Ethan -- were active in sports.
Agidia LANZOLLA, who lives across the street from the family, said that the news had flown around the neighbourhood, and that residents are still in shock.
"They're very nice people, they're lovely. I just couldn't believe it," she said. "I'm a walker, not a jogger, but I do that route every morning. She was doing the same route that I was doing. This morning, I was going to go out and I said, 'Forget it.'"
News of her death also raced around the Southern Ontario running community, with some noting angrily that joggers are not safe even if they stay off the roads.
A few blocks away from the CALLAWAY's home, people living near the crash site described finding a harrowing scene Tuesday evening.
"My husband went over and it was horrible, she was still breathing but it was shallow, then she died," said Linda SANTIA, who lives across the street.
The crash noise shook the neighbourhood, she said. Her 35-year-old son ran outside to find a male driver standing dazed next to a car with blood on his hands and face.
"We thought he was shocked… he sat outside our house on our bench," she said, adding that her son remembered the man from high school and knew he still lived nearby.
Police arrested Matthew JUNKERT at the scene. The 33-year-old remained in custody overnight and appeared in a Newmarket court yesterday on charges of drunk driving causing death and criminal negligence causing death.
His court appearance came the same day the Ontario Provincial Police officially launched their five-week Festive Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (R.I.D.E.) campaign.
Drunk driving is the leading criminal cause of death in Canada. When Commissioner Fantino was sworn in last month, he identified it as a priority. The Ontario Provincial Police laid 390,000 charges under the Highway Traffic Act last year, including nearly 11,000 for impaired driving.
Yesterday, Commissioner Fantino said that, in a world where so much is beyond the control of the ordinary citizen, he is bewildered that people are still reluctant to exercise control over their own conduct where and when they can. "These are decisions people make," he said. "They decide to drink or take drugs and drive, and very often, we let them -- Friends and family."
He said the time is right for society to get serious about it. "We've done a good job with domestic violence and gun violence, but we have to pay equal attention to what's happening on our roads and to the innocent people who are cut down on them."
