A plea for caution as a friend is lost
Man hit by van, then crushed by bus during a bad day on Toronto streets
By Isabel TEOTONIO and Tamara CHERRY, Staff Reporters
When Mark stepped outside for an early morning smoke break yesterday, he was just moments away from watching an acquaintance die in the middle of the street.
"I shook him to see if he was aware, awake and alive," recalled Mark, an employee at a Wilson Ave. coffee shop who ran to the scene where the victim had been struck by a van, then crushed beneath a Toronto Transit Commission bus. Mark asked that his last name not be used.
"His face was gushing blood, his head was cracked and his hands were clear, lifeless," said Mark, who immediately recognized the victim as the mentally challenged man with a limp who often stood outside the shop asking employees for coffee and customers for change. "I'm really shaken up. To watch a guy die in front of you is really hard."
The "guy" was 65-year-old Allan FELDMAN -- one of several pedestrians struck in a spate of traffic accidents yesterday morning that occurred throughout the city. Feldman was the only fatality.
At about 7: 20 a.m. the Toronto man stepped in front of a westbound bus that was stopped on Wilson Ave., near Bathurst St. Passengers were getting on and off as FELDMAN crossed in front, said police. As he passed, he was struck by a minivan that knocked him under the bus. Unaware he was on the ground, the bus driver accelerated and the man was killed almost instantly. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
"This is a tragic accident and we encourage pedestrians and drivers to be as careful as they can," said Sgt. Jim CASSELLS of Traffic Services. "It appears it was the rear (bus) wheels that ran over him."
In the hours following the incident, police and Toronto Transit Commission staff worked to pinpoint exactly which bus had hit the man so they could interview the driver. The driver of both the van and the bus have been interviewed, but police say it is too early in their investigation to determine whether charges will be laid.
A Toronto Transit Commission spokesperson refused to comment because of the ongoing police investigation.
"People are feeling the loss of a friend," said Sandy KESHEN, executive director of Reena, an organization that services people with developmental disabilities and runs a support home where FELDMAN lived. "Allan was a fiercely independent man and he had a wicked sense of humour."
Eric WOLFMAN, manager of Bagel World, where FELDMAN often started his day with a free coffee and twister, recalled him as a "happy go-lucky guy."
"He always sat in the same seat -- in the corner -- and loved to talk about sports," said WOLFMAN. " Sometimes his thoughts were all over the place… but he was well-informed."
Although FELDMAN could at times be a "nuisance" when asking customers for spare change or cigarettes, he was never aggressive and "didn't have a hurtful bone in his body," said the manager.
Less than an hour earlier, around 6: 40 a.m. in the city's northwest, a 21-year-old man escaped major injury, again in a hit-and-run incident.
About 40 minutes later, a vehicle struck a woman on Bathurst St. near Fairlawn Ave. The woman, believed to be about 80, was found conscious and breathing before being taken to hospital in serious, but stable condition.
And at about 8 a.m. an 11-year-old child was hurt in a hit-and-run incident in the Bloor West Village area, near Dundas St. W. and Keele St. The child was found "conscious and breathing and crying, so that's a good sign," said Staff Sgt. Noël LEE. Police are seeking a white van that left the scene.
Yesterday's events came on the heels of a tragic incident Wednesday night in Richmond Hill when a car killed a 37-year-old mother of four who was out jogging.
FELDMAN's funeral will be held Sunday at 11: 30 a.m. at Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel on Steeles Ave. W. Interment will follow in the Pride of Israel Synagogue section of Mount Sinai Memorial Park.

LAZARIUK, Robert Stephen
By Debbie KESTENBERG, Page A20
Son, brother, uncle, friend, colleague. Born October 30, 1953, in Belleville, Ontario Died December 11, 2005 in Toronto, of colon cancer, aged 52.
In conversation, Robert challenged us and always inspired us with the confidence to express opinions. He listened and he counselled, always generously prefaced with "May I offer some free advice?" He also never failed to tune us up as needed; no one escaped Robert's corrections in English grammar!
He had a certain spark about him and a twinkle in his eye. Whenever you were with Robert you were laughing; and he couldn't resist teasing and getting a reaction from those around him. In some ways, he was a performer. You can only imagine his glee at winning the Toastmasters national speech contest for humour on the topic of, believe it or not, the semi-colon.
Robert was a high achiever; a perfectionist. With enthusiasm, he mastered languages: French, Spanish, and Portuguese, with a little Japanese thrown in. This opened up a whole new world for meeting people and absorbing the best of other cultures. This, combined with his great love of travel, could lead to interesting experiences for his travelling companions. I always laugh remembering the time in Mexico when I, unilingual, watched from the sidelines as hope grew for the timeshare sales person, as Robert enthusiastically practised his Spanish for over an hour! Once personally established, Robert used his talents to help others to achieve their dreams including doctors in Latin America now able to give back in their own ways.
Born in Belleville, Robert earned his B. Sc. and M. Sc. degrees at the Universities of Guelph and Manitoba, respectively, and a B.A. in Spanish from the University of Ottawa. He lived in Montreal, then in Ottawa; more recently returning to Toronto to be close to family.
Robert was in the prime of his life and just about to leave for a two-year stint in Guatemala, a hard-won posting with the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, when news of late-stage colon cancer stopped him in his tracks. Never one to be down for long, Robert still dreamed of travel and even bought and expertly decorated a new home.
His network of Friends also continued to grow throughout his last year. His innate ability to connect instantly with people on a very personal and intimate level was even evident during trips to Princess Margaret Hospital with his sister. In her observation, no matter how sick he might have been feeling, he was always buoyed by a smile or a kind word from a stranger. His invitation to another would be a smile, a word of encouragement or, just as likely, an irreverent crack or a probing question. And so, he would enjoy either "a Friendship with no tomorrow" or the beginning of a deep and lasting Friendship.
With characteristic enthusiasm, despite his prognosis, Robert continued to make the most of his days. In his near-to-last e-mail to me, Robert, who loved to dance -- especially salsa -- proudly celebrated his momentarily renewed energy after chemo treatments. In his own words: "I danced and made my partner tired on the weekend. Trivial to somebody who has his/her health, but I was so happy to be dancing as if I never stopped. I remember so vividly the days where I could not envisage good health, even to do something as simple as walk down the street."
It was important to Robert that his death has meaning and purpose just as his life did. His final moments were filled with laughter, tears, singing, and resolution. Surrounded by those he loved, Robert died as he lived -- with a smile.
Debbie KESTENBERG is a friend and a great admirer of Robert's family and wide circle of Friends.
