Three die in separate but related crashes on the 401
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A7
Three people are dead, including a mother and daughter, after a horrific chain of events unfolded on a small strip of Canada's busiest highway yesterday.
The accidents involved four vehicles - including three trucks - in two separate but related crashes.
It all began about 4 a.m. Fanshawe College student Ashley GARROD, 22, was driving eastbound on the 401 near London, Ontario, with her mother, Elizabeth THOM, when a tractor-trailer struck them from behind, police said. Their small car was sent skidding across the highway before coming to a stop in the ditch on the south side.
Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Dave REKTOR said police received a 911 call about headlights seen shining out of the ditch.
When emergency crews arrived, they found Ms. GARROD and her 52-year-old mother dead inside the car. The truck that had hit them was nowhere to be found, Sgt. REKTOR said.
After issuing a public alert, police found a truck with extensive damage to its front at a Flying J truck stop a few kilometres away.
Its 61-year-old driver, Stefan FOGIEL, of Acton, has been charged with two counts of failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death, resisting arrest, failing to maintain log books, and failing to have a pre-trip inspection.
The highway was closed for several hours as investigators reconstructed the collision.
Then, just before 11 a.m., a transport truck slowing down as it approached the roadblock at the collision site was struck from behind by another truck. The driver of the second truck, Timothy McDERMOTT, 50, died on impact. The driver of the first truck, Harpreet PANNU, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. No charges are expected to be laid.
"It would appear the driver was not paying attention," Sgt. REKTOR said. "The at-fault driver was the victim as well."
The officer said the collisions were that much more tragic because both could have been prevented with more careful driving.
