Ordinary day, extraordinary tragedy
Couple killed on Highway 400 remembered as truck drivers await next court date
By Susan KRASHINSKY, Page A12
It was the kind of day that shouldn't have been remarkable at all, much less tragic.
On a cloudy Saturday, Don LOURIE got into his car. His wife, Elsie, was in the passenger's seat. The Scarborough couple set off along Highway 400 on a pleasure trip to Rama, Ontario
Meanwhile, Gurmail Singh BRAICH and Ali BASER steered their dump trucks onto the same highway - another afternoon on the job.
Before the end of the day, the LOURIEs would be dead, Mr. BRAICH and Mr. BASER would be in custody and three families would have their lives upended.
At the funeral yesterday, Dan LOURIE remembered his parents as high-spirited, generous and full of stories.
"I will never tire of Don and Elsie's wonderful adventures," he said.
For 21 years, the LOURIEs ran Chunky Fries, a chip truck at the 400 Market. When Mr. LOURIE sold the wagon last year, he had hoped to have more free time, manager Scott SAUNDERS said.
"You could always count on Don to be a gentleman. He was a great man to know," he said.
On Saturday, a dump truck headed south on Highway 400 collided with the concrete median. The tailgate came off the truck and flew into the northbound lanes, where it crashed through the windshield of an oncoming sport utility vehicle.
Elsie LOURIE was killed instantly, and Mr. LOURIE died shortly after. They were both 75.
Mr. BRAICH, of Brampton, is charged with dangerous driving causing death and criminal negligence causing death, while Mr. BASER, of Toronto, is charged with dangerous driving.
Defence counsel Rudi COVRE is representing both of them. He described them as hardworking family men caught in a tragic situation.
"Three families' lives have been destroyed," he said in an interview Wednesday.
Neither man had a previous criminal record.
Mr. BRAICH was released Tuesday on $100,000 bail. Mr. BASER was granted bail on Wednesday, at $30,000.
Their bail conditions forbid them to drive or even have keys to a motor vehicle, Crown counsel Harold DALE said in an interview.
Standing outside the courthouse in Newmarket on Wednesday, Mr. BASER's teenage son said the truck-driving job was the best work his father had found since coming to Canada from Turkey about a decade ago.
"He's the only one working in the family," said 16-year-old Ali. "What are we going to do now?"
He stubbed out his cigarette and excused himself. "I got to go get my dad," he said.
Mr. BRAICH and Mr. BASER will return to court in May.
