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.
