Storm topples tree on woman
By Jennifer O'BRIEN and Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporters, Fri., October 13, 2006
Filomena PALMEIRI shelters herself with a blanket from a howling snow squall yesterday. She was watching her son's football team from Mother Teresa high school battling the Saint Thomas Aquinas high school team at Aquinas's field in London. (Dave CHIDLEY, The London Free Press)
Yesterday's unexpected snowsqualls and wind gusts broke a large tree that fell on and seriously injured an elderly woman.
It was just one of many calls paramedics faced yesterday because of slick roads and weather-related injuries.
The elderly woman was walking along Central Avenue near Wellington Street when the tree fell.
"She sustained extensive internal injuries," said Middlesex-London Emergency Medical Services duty manager Chris DARBY.
"She was not trapped under the tree, but she was under a branch. Paramedics were able to immobilize her and treat her before transporting her" to hospital.
The woman was simply "in the wrong place at the wrong time," DARBY said.
Accidents occurred throughout the day, including one at Adelaide and Oxford streets, where a vehicle crashed into a former bank building, DARBY said.
The injuries in that crash were not serious.
A car crash southeast of London that claimed the life of a 27-year-old Langton woman also was blamed on slick and snow-covered roads.
Norfolk County Ontario Provincial Police said the driver of a minivan that slid into oncoming traffic on Concession Road 2 in the former Houghton Township near Tillsonburg died from her injuries.
Jaclyn SZALKAI, 27, of Langton, was pronounced dead in a Tillsonburg hospital after the 2 p.m. crash. Ontario Provincial Police said snow and slush-covered roads contributed to the crash.
Another crash south of London sent a minivan driver to hospital with minor injuries. The driver in that crash T-boned a dump truck, which slid into the opposite lane of traffic.
The truck driver steered his vehicle back into the southbound lane of Highbury Avenue near Westminster Drive and wasn't injured. He was on his way home because he'd been told Highway 401 was too slick to work on.
The fall blast of snow caused havoc elsewhere in London yesterday.
Blinded by the snow, University of Western Ontario students, many in T-shirts, raced for the nearest cover.
The first squall dismayed students taking part in a Bike for A.I.D.S. bike-athon outside Western's University Community Centre.
"Oh no, this was not supposed to happen," groaned organizer Samantha ROBERTSON, holding an arm over her face to block the wind as balloons danced behind her and jugs holding donations tipped over.
"What the hell is going on?" shrieked a woman, head down as she plowed through a white wall of snow.
"Um, Okay folks, we are just going to break for a few minutes here and reassess the situation," announced the lead singer of a band that had been playing on a stage.
While organizers did so, students ran in all directions, often bumping into one another in the scramble.
But not even wintry weather could break the spirit of the 150 people participating in the bike-athon, designed to raise money to buy bikes for workers with African A.I.D.S. agencies.
"Well, I guess it's a tradition," Jackie STRECKER said. "The first year we ran it in April and it snowed, so this year we moved it to October, and look at this."
Though the snow may have come as a surprise to most people, it isn't really out of the ordinary, an Environment Canada meteorologist said.
"This time of year, the air masses travel across the Great Lakes…. You're warm, then the next day you're cold. That's the way it goes," Andre Cyr said.
Yesterday's snowsqualls came to southern Ontario after crossing Lake Michigan and tossed about one centimetre of snow onto London.
That's far from the record, said Cyr, citing a 6.8-centimetre dump on October 12, 1988.
Flurries are expected to return tonight when the low dips to -2°C. Highs for the next few days will be in the high single digits, well below the normal high for this time of year of 14.9°C.
Analynda MIELKE and Bill CHERNIAK of University of Western Ontario's Triathlon Club were at the bottom of a hill when the snow hit.
"It was really, really intense," said MIELKE, her face wet.
Though wacky weather may have cut into on-site donations for the event, organizers of the bikeathon still hoped to reach their $10,000 goal, STRECKER said. Each of 14 teams paid $200 to take part and a charity party was planned for last night.
Last year the event raised $7,500, which bought about 32 bikes to be sent to A.I.D.S. workers in Africa.
