Mom, 2 kids killed, son, dad injured in horrific crash
Police say the Hamilton-area crash occurred when a van ran a stop sign.
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Sat., August 25, 2007
Hamilton -- A family's plan of a new start to their lives ended in tragedy when a van ran a stop sign and demolished their minivan near Brantford, killing a mom and two of her kids.
Shannon O'LEARY, 32, and her two-month-old daughter Hailey O'LEARY- FERGUSON died instantly in the 9: 06 p.m. Thursday crash at Brant County Rd. 4 and the Burford-Delhi Townline Rd.
Shannon's daughter, Taylor O'LEARY, 10, died at 3 a.m. yesterday in Hamilton hospital, say Friends and neighbours, and her organs were donated.
Her son, Ethan, 4, is in a medically induced coma following surgery for severe head trauma and Shannon's husband, Dennis FERGUSON, is in stable condition.
The 21-year-old driver of the other van, a Chevy Astro, is in grave condition. He is accused of running the stop sign and slamming into the victims' northbound Pontiac Montana, which was almost split in two by the tremendous impact.
Ariel VARGA, 12, said she's finding it difficult losing a close friend. Taylor "was a good person. She was nice, She liked to go shopping a lot," Ariel said. "She had lots of Friends around here."
Friend Natalia ALFANO, 9, said the neighbourhood girls would play cheerleading, dolls and gymnastics. "It was really fun to play with her," Natalia said. "We always used to laugh together and play."
Ontario Provincial Police Const. Larry PLUMMER said investigators were told by a witness driving behind the Chevy Astro that there were no brake lights before the Chevy crashed into the passenger sliding door of the victims' Montana.
"It was an incredible, terrible impact," he said.
"We don't have a clue" why the driver failed to stop, PLUMMER said, adding the area is flat and it was a "beautiful moonlit night."
"There's no rhyme or reason and the only person that obviously knows was driving the vehicle and we don't expect to talk to him for quite a while, if we ever do."
PLUMMER said it took Brant County volunteer firefighters about 20 minutes to free the trapped man.
