Alcohol suspected in crash
Teen spoke to his mother minutes before death
37-year-old driver now facing charges
By Curtis RUSH, Staff Reporter
Ravi MADHAI was on the cellphone to his mother just after 10 p.m. Monday. The 17-year-old Mississauga teen had been late getting home to help his uncle, who delivers baked goods. His family was worried.
His mom, Ragginni, finally got in touch with him, frantically asking where he was. "I said, 'When are you coming home?' And he said, 'Right now, Mommy,'" a distraught Ragginni said. "That was the last I heard."
Five minutes later, a crash ended his life.
MADHAI's mother didn't learn of her son's death until police arrived at the family home at 3 a.m. yesterday. They told her MADHAI was in the rear passenger seat of a Ford sport utility vehicle that had crashed on the westbound Gardiner Expressway just east of Park Lawn Rd. at 10: 22 p.m.
According to police, the sport utility vehicle was going too fast and swerved to avoid another vehicle, before overcorrecting, travelling across four lanes and smashing into the concrete barrier.
The impact drove MADHAI's head through the side window, and he was pinned between the barrier and the vehicle, suffering fatal head injuries.
The teenager didn't have a chance even though he was wearing a seatbelt, police say.
The driver and a 21-year-old man in the front seat, both Friends of the victim, were hurt only slightly. Alleging that alcohol was involved, police have charged the driver.
MADHAI, who had a brother and five sisters, had left home earlier to fix "someone's van," his mother said. Some in the family speculate that he wound up playing pool with the Friends.
The Grade 12 student at Lincoln M. Alexander Secondary School in Mississauga was "a go-getter" and a "jack of all trades," said his sister Reshma, 22.
Born in Montreal to parents originally from Trinidad, he moved to Toronto with his family in 1998.
"He wasn't a bad kid. He wasn't involved in any trouble. He was just stubborn, but he was turning his attitude around," said his aunt, Vashty MAHARAJ.
There was a sad twist the day after, as investigating detective Paul LOBSINGER appeared at a news conference after a sleepless night for the launch of a police road safety campaign, Operation Safe Journey, aimed at preventing such tragedies. One poster for for it advises: "Plan Ahead. Choose Your Ride."
Emergency personnel responded to 11,436 vehicle incidents in Toronto last year, up 8 per cent, Fire Chief William STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said at the news conference. "These numbers are alarming," he told reporters.
LOBSINGER agreed, expressing worry that drivers aren't taking the threat of an accident seriously enough. "These accidents take a toll on everyone," he said.
Also at the event was former member of provincial parliament David TSUBOUCHI, who lost his father in a still unsolved hit-and-run last year.
Carolyn SWINSON, co-president of the Toronto chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, spoke of the accident that killed her son Rob in 1993.
The female driver who struck his Volvo was 2½ times over the legal alcohol limit and had held a driver's licence only 10 days.
She was acquitted because the judge refused to allow a breath test as evidence, SWINSON said.
And, just as it happened to the MADHAI family, a police officer came to deliver the news.
"My knees buckled and I fell to the floor," SWINSON recalled.
"My heart just goes out to this family. There's nothing more painful than the sudden death of a child."
In this week's case, Dawn Marie COX, 37, is charged with impaired driving causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.
She appeared in court yesterday and was released on bail.
