Young dad among 5 dead
Kevin GONCALVES might have survived the afternoon of road carnage had he been wearing a seatbelt.
By Glynnis MAPP, Sun Media, Mon., August 13, 2007
At 22, Kevin GONCALVES of Arkona was well on his way -- he had a job, a baby and a BMW he'd saved up to buy.
All that vanished Saturday, in one of four crashes on Southwestern Ontario roads that left five people dead.
Had he worn his seatbelt, GONCALVES might have survived his crash, police said.
"He was a good father and he loved his daughter very much," Larissa VAN LIESHOUT, the mother of GONCALVES' four-month-old daughter, Rozlynn, said yesterday.
GONCALVES died when the BMW he was driving crashed about 2: 30 p.m. on Melbourne Road in Adelaide Metcalfe, west of London.
GONCALVES lost control while passing on a curve and crossed into the opposite lane, striking a pickup truck, police said.
An unidentified passenger in the BMW, also 22, wasn't wearing a seatbelt, either, police said, and was flown to to a London hospital. The passenger remained in critical condition.
The pickup driver, Alyse MALLET of Melbourne, 19, who wore her seatbelt, was treated in hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
In Strathroy, GONCALVES' Friends were still recovering from the loss.
"He was really outgoing. Everyone liked him. He would always help out a friend if they needed it. That's what he would always do for me," said Steve WRAITH, who met GONCALVES in Grade 9 when both attended Strathroy District Collegiate Institute.
Along with GONCALVES, WRAITH and his girlfriend had also welcomed a newborn girl only a few months earlier.
GONCALVES worked as a shipper and receiver with egg distributor Greyridge Foods. He told Friends he was trying to save up for a condominium of his own.
WRAITH said the couples gave each other baby advice as both pregnancies developed and were excited about the births, a first for all of them.
"It was a busy time for all of us," he said.
Across the London region, other fatal crashes Saturday occurred near London, where an elderly woman died; in Huron County, where a driver plunged to his death off a bridge; and in Chatham-Kent, where two motorcycle drivers were killed in a head-on crash.
- Near Wheatley, the two motorcycle drivers died in the collision about 2: 30 p.m. that followed what police described as an attempt by one to evade an officer -- stopped on Zion Road and out of his patrol car -- trying to motion him to pull over for not wearing a safety helmet. Police said a motorcycle, driven by 21-year-old Harley PALMER of Wheatley, bypassed the officer through a field and emerged on Talbot Trail where the bike collided with another driven by Daniel McCALLUM, 26, of Dearborn, Michigan., killing both. Other motorcyclists travelling with McCALLUM were able to avoid the collision.
Ontario's police watchdog agency, the Special Investigations Unit, was notified, but is not investigating since the officer wasn't pursuing the motorcycle bike driver, police said. The Special Investigations Unit probes police actions that lead to serious injuries or death.
- In Huron County, a 31-year-old man from West Perth, in Perth County, whose name wasn't released, died after the vehicle he was driving went off a bridge at 3: 30 p.m. near Dublin.
- In Middlesex County, just outside London, a two-car collision about 2: 30 a.m. at Nairn Road and Oxbow Drive sent three people to hospital, including Marie Mae LUNHAM, 73, of Forest, who later died of her injuries. Andrew CLASSEN, 23, of London, is charged with failing to yield to traffic.

Marie Mae LUNHAM, 73, of Forest, later dies of her injuries.
