Two die in crash on Highway 401 crash
Their sport utility vehicle collides with a transport after crossing the median at Woodstock.
By Joe BELANGER, Sun Media, Tues., February 26, 2008
Two people were killed in a crash after their sport utility vehicle crossed the grass median on Highway 401 at Woodstock and hit a westbound transport carrying a load of fuel.
The crash Sunday night was the second fatal crash in the area in less than a week.
The identities of the victims weren't released. The truck driver was taken to Woodstock hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
"It was just horrible, really sad," said Terra CROWE, 25, of Peterborough, who was headed to Toronto at the time.
"When we were getting closer, we could see the fire and then it just got really big, really fast."
Oxford Ontario Provincial Police said the crash occurred just east of Oxford County Road 2 at 7: 38 p.m. when the eastbound sport utility vehicle went out of control, onto the median and rolled into the transport.
The tanker, full of a mixture of diesel and other fuel products, was travelling to Sarnia.
"Upon impact the passenger vehicle and the truck portion of the unit caught on fire," said Const. Dennis HARWOOD.
The tanker portion of the truck didn't catch fire.
Names of the victims won't be released until next of kin are contacted, Harwood said. [The victims were subsequently identified as Lisa DOWARD, 21, and Sarah Paige RYAN, 19.]
Both lanes of the highway were reopened early yesterday.
Last Wednesday, a Windsor truck driver was killed when his rig slammed into the rear of another transport stopped on the west merge lane from Highway 403 to Highway 401 about 3 a.m.
Muammer ACAR, 40, was killed, but the driver of the stopped truck, Gezim NDRIOLLARI, 52, of Toronto, wasn't injured.
Police continue to investigate that crash.
The provincial Tories added a political twist to the carnage yesterday.
Conservative member of provincial parliament Frank Klees, the public infrastructure critic, cited the crash while calling out the governing Liberals to invest more in improving Ontario roads and toughening laws "before more innocent lives are lost."

CROWE, Mary Sarah (née ROULSTON)
Mary peacefully finished her worldly travels March 4, 2008 at the McCall Center in Toronto. Born in Toronto, in 1921, she had left the security of her home and family in 1942 to enter the workforce as part of the war effort with the British Mission in Washington, D.C. While there, in 1946, she started work with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization where she met "his nibs" Francis Xavier CROWE.
After leaving the States she spent the time between 1952 and 1962 in Rome, Italy working for the F.A.O.. Mary, a Presbyterian, married "his nibs" during this time in the Vatican in Saint Peter's Basilica.
Following the death of "his nibs" in 1962 she returned to Toronto to settle down with her sister Susie and husband Willie.
May, as many called her, settled back here to enjoy a life of work, at Popsicle Industries, and as well, time for extensive travel, theatre, and many volunteer hours at charities and non profit organizations. Through the next 44 years, she maintained and cultivated Friendships to the enjoyment of many a lucky person. Always a lady and only kind words to offer, Mary set an example for many, both her peers and young people who were fortunate to know her. She always had a place in her heart for animal welfare and was of constant support to various groups involved in this area.
Throughout her life she fondly recalled both the times and people of Washington and Rome whom she had cherished so much. Mary was always proud of her Irish roots right up to the time she "ups and died".
Mary is survived by family in Australia, the United States and Ireland. She will always be remembered by scores of Friends and acquaintances.
A gathering to celebrate Mary's life will be held at the Ridley Funeral Home, 3080 Lakeshore Blvd. W. (between Islington and Kipling Aves., at 14th Street, 416-259-3705) at 3: 00 p.m. Saturday March 8, 2008.

CROWLEY, Ann (1944-2003)
Run for Ovarian Cancer Memorial July 5th marks the 5th anniversary of the passing of our very dear friend Ann CROWLEY, as a result of Ovarian Cancer. When she was diagnosed with this dreadful disease Ann felt compelled to bring all of her considerable influence and energy to making other women aware of the signs and symptoms of this disease. With a handful of Friends and family, Ann started the Run for Ovarian Cancer to try and raise awareness and to generate funds for research into a cure or early detection for Ovarian Cancer. Her good work was multiplied by the efforts of other London women diagnosed with the same disease, women like Elaine Pensa, Kim Sinclair and Nancy Ford. In 2008 these grass roots efforts have added over $100,000 to the money raised since the Run's beginning, bringing the total to over half a million dollars! This money goes directly to support a translational cancer research initiative at London Regional Cancer Centre in co-operation with the Gynaecology Department of University of Western Ontario and London Health Sciences Centre. Researchers and care givers assisted by Doctor Trevor SHEPHERD are working diligently to unlock the key to early detection and ultimately a cure. The executive committee of The Run for Ovarian Cancer remembers and honours Ann CROWLEY for her inspiration and the positive impact that it continues to bring to our community and to women everywhere.

TOPOLSKI, Gregory Xavier Ogonczyk
On February 13, 2008, in Toronto, at the age of 39. In the face of a fifteen-year-long battle with melanoma, he stood brave, optimistic and uncomplaining. Greg attended Chelsea Elementary School, Philemon Wright High School, and Lisgar Collegiate Institute. He received a degree in Honours Business Administration from the University of Western Ontario Business School (now the Richard Ivey School of Business) in 1991. He was passionate about his work as a Program Manager with the Corporate PMO of Rogers Cable. His keen intellect and genial way made him a natural manager. His work with Daxxes, ADC Software, and Belgacom took him to Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary, Denver, Brussels, Colombia, Chile and Bangalore. Greg inherited his father's love of travel and culture and revelled in his impressions of Paris, Prague, Australia, London, Poland and elsewhere. Barrelling down Camp Fortune's hardest runs as a kid prepared him for slopes in the French Alps and British Columbia. He was an accomplished golfer and tennis player. He enjoyed getting away to Eddis Island on Cachacoma Lake with his Friends, cousins, and dog Zeus, where he would sometimes paint landscapes. Greg's tremendous general knowledge made him equally comfortable discussing politics, history, wine or dog breeding. He made Friends as easily in the mountains of Colombia as in the boardroom. His two last trips were with his father, to Italy and Portugal (in October 2007). Greg was witty, discerning, spiritual, full of joie de vivre and an inspiration to his family and many Friends for both the way he lived his life and how he dealt with his illness. To spend time with him was to feel cheered.
Dearly loved and missed by his father Aleksander Boguslaw, mother Joan Eddis, sister Alexa (Gerry), brother Rory Munn, and nieces Caroline and Sarah. Special thanks to his faithful Friends John and Seanna Reid, Steve and Louisa Bull, Ben and Evan Nuttall, Fraser Walters, Julian and Shelley Franklin, and Natalie Mamen cousins Tim EDDIS, Mary CROWTHER, and Margarita MORALES; Suzanne MONTGOMERY and the whole team at Rogers; and doctors Vincent Young and David Satok for their unwavering support and love. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 1st at two o'clock at the McGarry Memorial Chapel, 139 Valley Road, Wakefield, Quebec (819) 459-1800. In lieu of flowers, gifts can be made to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation for melanoma research.
