Crash claims energetic A student
Phillip MacLACHLAN was a University of Western Ontario engineering student, water polo player and loyal friend.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Tues., January 17, 2006
An intern at Links Coatings, he died a day after a two-vehicle crash at Airport Road and Dundas Street.
The funeral of a top-notch University of Western Ontario student and promising engineer killed in a two-vehicle crash will be held tomorrow.
Phillip Nakahara MacLACHLAN, 22, a University of Western Ontario chemical engineering student and varsity water polo player, was badly hurt in the rush-hour collision at Airport Road and Dundas Street about 5 p.m. Thursday. He died of his injuries a day later.
A former professor recalled MacLACHLAN -- who had been interning full time with an Airport Road-area firm since May -- as a dedicated student with loads of professional potential.
"He is a good student, every professor knows that," said Jesse ZHU of University of Western Ontario's engineering department, who helped MacLACHLAN land the year-long internship at Links Coatings.
"He's an A student... and he's very quiet, but he's actually fairly active."
To his loved ones, MacLACHLAN, a graduate of Lucas secondary school, was an energetic person who worked nights at the Ceeps pub and always made time for his girlfriend, Friends and family.
"He just liked to keep himself active," said Jim MacLACHLAN, his older brother.
"He was always here for the family," Jim MacLACHLAN added. "He was an all-around great guy."
In addition to his studies and work schedule, MacLACHLAN was also president of a University of Western Ontario intramural sports club.
An endowment likely will be established in his honour to benefit future chemical engineering students, ZHU said.
MacLACHLAN's obituary notice painted him as a promising young man from a big London family -- he was one of Emmy and Fred MacLACHLAN's four children.
"He lived intensely in all that he did and will greatly miss his wonderful Friends at school and work," it read.
Visitation is scheduled for today, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Harris Funeral Home on James Street. The funeral is set for 1 p.m. tomorrow, followed by a private cremation.
MacLACHLAN was driving north along Airport Road, London police said, and about to turn left on Dundas Street when he collided with a southbound driver.
Investigators were probing the crash yesterday and details were sketchy, Const. Amanda PFEFFER said.
The second driver suffered minor injuries.
The Airport-Dundas intersection wasn't named on a list of London's top 20 crash-prone zones, released last week by Sgt. Tom O'BRIEN of the traffic management unit. But crashes there can easily result in serious injuries, O'BRIEN said.
"When I hear there's been a collision with injuries at Dundas and Airport, high speed and big vehicles come to mind. That's the problem," he said.

Dad, 2 daughters killed in collision
By Debora VAN BRENK, Daniela SIMUNAC, April KEMICK and Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporters, Wed. May 31, 2006
A London man and his two daughters were killed Monday in a head-on collision so violent police weren't sure at first how many people had died.
John DAUBS, 49, and daughters, Ashley, 15, and Stephanie, 12, died when their car was crushed beneath a flatbed towed by a dump truck on Clarke Road near Kilally Road in the city's northeast.
Police are investigating whether the collision was intentional, mechanical or accidental, London police Const. Amanda PFEFFER said.
"It really is indescribable."
As word of the deaths spread at Clarke Road secondary school, where Ashley was in Grade 9, students there were overwhelmed with grief, said friend Taylor WAREHAM.
"People who knew (Ashley) were really upset and confused," said WAREHAM, who was on the track and field team with the popular student.
"There were so many people crying in the hallways. (Ashley) was such a happy outgoing girl," said Jordan CLAYTON, 15, a friend who laid flowers at the crash scene last night.
Friends described the 15-year-old track star as funny, athletic and outgoing, well-liked by peers.
Her younger sister, Stephanie, who was in Grade 7 at Bonaventure Meadows elementary school, was remembered by those who knew her as a smart, friendly, athletic girl with lots of Friends.
"She was always happy," said Murtaza REZAZADA, in Stephanie's class last year.
Carolyn WEBB, a retired Bonaventure kindergarten teacher who taught both girls and stayed in touch with the family, said the pair were "wonderful, loveable girls."
WEBB said John and his wife Debbie had recently separated, but the family remained tight.
"The parents were so dedicated to those girls -- they did everything for them," WEBB said, wiping her eyes.
"This is so devastating."
John's sister, Diane HALES, said last night the family was shocked to hear of the triple fatality early yesterday.
HALES said John was a "doting" dad who was a regular at the girls' many athletic and musical events.
"(John) was a proud father," she said, adding the two girls were "inseparable."
Those who knew John at the trailer park where he had lived and worked as manager for the last 10 years agreed.
"As a dad, he was always there for them," said Jim ANDREW, owner of the London Terrace trailer park on Dundas Street.
"John was very involved."
Overnight and into yesterday, a blue tarp covered the Chevy Citation, flattened by the dump truck.
Yesterday, about 12 London police officers walked shoulder to shoulder examining the road for evidence.
Another 10 blue-gloved officers scoured the ditches and the road edge, searched for clues that might explain why the northbound car slammed into the southbound truck.
The vehicles -- car, dump truck and a backhoe still secured to the truck's flatbed -- were pulled from the scene, but the road wasn't re-opened until yesterday, allowing police to investigate.
Police have interviewed the truck driver, who suffered minor injuries in the crash.
A dog in the car died yesterday.
Police ask any witnesses: to the crash to call 661-5670.

Woman's last days a mystery
Line THERRIEN left her home two days before her body was found.
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter, Fri., July 14, 2006
London police are trying to nail down what happened in the final hours of a Saint Thomas woman's life, after her body was found floating in the Thames River Saturday night.
Line THERRIEN, 36, was last seen alive about midnight last Thursday, walking near her Saint Thomas home, police said.
Two people fishing found her body 48 hours later, in the Thames River near Wellington Street in London.
What happened in the two-day period between the time THERRIEN was last seen alive and the time she was found dead is central to the police investigation, Const. Amanda PFEFFER said yesterday.
"We need to speak with anyone who may have spoken with her in those two days," she said.
"We just don't know."
THERRIEN, whose name and picture police released yesterday hoping someone might have information on her final hours, lived with her partner, Frank, on Mondamin Street near Saint Thomas's downtown strip.
The couple's tidy, powder-blue home, surrounded by a white picket fence and decorated with several potted plants, was quiet yesterday but for the barking of dogs.
A next-door neighbour said the pair had asked him to take care of the dogs Saturday.
Charles HERDMAN said the couple had planned a day trip to Port Dover.
But when HERDMAN talked to Frank, he was told THERRIEN wasn't home yet and he wouldn't need to come over to watch the dogs.
HERDMAN, who described THERRIEN as a "nice woman" who spoke with a French accent, said he couldn't remember the last time he saw her.
Police described her as white, about five-foot-six and 140 pounds, with short blond hair. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, a red top and sandals.
Police haven't found the black leather purse THERRIEN is believed to have been carrying when she left her home.
How To Help
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
