No end to pain in unsolved fatalities
Road accident cases hard for families, police
By Nick KYONKA, Staff Reporter
The parents of Andres MALDONADO still have questions about the night their son was killed in a hit-and-run accident two months ago.
"I would like to clarify what happened that night because nothing is clear for me," his father, Galo MALDONADO, said Friday. "I would like to talk to the people who were involved in this accident&hellip I need answers."
Those people, however, are not coming forward.
Nineteen-year-old Andres died while trying to cross Highway 27 near Humber College Blvd. shortly after midnight on October 29.
Crossing against a red light, he was struck by one car in the passing lane before falling into the curb lane and being struck again.
The first car stopped but the driver has never come to speak to the teen's family. The second car, believed to be light-coloured and mid-sized, sped away and has not been seen since.
The teen's death is one of three unsolved fatal accidents in 2006, and officers from the Toronto police Traffic Services division are calling on the public to help shed light on each of the cases.
"None of us like to have outstanding cases where we haven't been able to find who's responsible for the victim's families," said Det. Paul LOBSINGER. " When we're unable to solve it, we have some sense that we haven't just let the family down, we've let the community down."
In MALDONADO's case, he said, it's even more frustrating because the driver of the second car would not have faced any criminal charges had he or she stopped after the accident.
"(MALDONADO) was dressed completely in dark clothing, crossing a highway in the dark against a red light," he noted.
The other two unsolved road deaths last year came about half an hour apart on the morning of March 11.
At about 8: 50 a.m., 69-year-old Jure KOZINA was crossing the road near Dundas St. and Bloor St. W. when a car plowed through the intersection, fatally striking KOZINA.
The car, which did not stay at the scene, was believed to be a dark-coloured, late-'90s Mercury Sable.
At around 9: 15 a.m. on the other side of the city, 47-year-old Ronald HARDING was taking advantage of some unseasonably warm weather by taking his motorcycle out for a ride in the city's east end when he ran a red light at Morningside Ave. and Sheppard Ave. E.
Another vehicle, believed to be a mid-to-late-'90s silver Pontiac Grand Am, was heading through the intersection at the same time and collided with Harding's bike. The driver of the car stopped briefly at the scene before speeding off.
"We all know in our mind that there are people out there who know what happened and who know who's responsible," LOBSINGER said of the cases. "It's hard to get it in our mind that they would not come forward."
As for Galo MALDONADO, he and his family are no longer angry with the driver who killed his son. They simply want to know what happened. "We are Christians and we don't want nothing against them but we need to clarify the situation," he said.
