With broken ankles, crash survivor crawls to safety
By Kenyon WALLACE with a report from James BRADSHAW, Page A18
One man is dead and another is in hospital after a single-vehicle crash early yesterday morning in which police say the survivor, who suffered two broken ankles, pulled himself from the wreckage and crawled half a kilometre through the snow to a nearby gun club.
Brandon MANTHAU, 22, was a passenger in Nathan MAGEE's black 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche when the eastbound sport utility vehicle plowed into a dense wood beside Herald Road, just past Kennedy Road near Newmarket, around 1 a.m.
York Regional Police said they were notified of the crash when the vehicle's OnStar navigational system, triggered by the release of the airbags, could not make contact with the two Friends.
But when police arrived at what they believed to be the crash site, they could not find the wreck anywhere. "The location police were given by OnStar was not correct," said Constable Marina ORLOVSKY, media-relations officer for the York police.
Police spent nearly 1½ hours combing an area about 10 kilometres west of the actual crash site. Meanwhile, Mr. MANTHAU reached the gun club about two hours after the accident and set off the building's security alarm. A man at the gun club called police, and Mr. MANTHAU was able to lead them to the crash site, Constable ORLOVSKY said.
Mr. MAGEE, 24, a heavy-machinery operator at a King City pipeline and utility contractor, was pronounced dead at the scene. Mr. MANTHAU was taken to Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto, where he remained last night.
"He's a very strong young man who comes from hearty stock," said Judy MANTHAU, Mr. MANTHAU's aunt. "When you're his age, you'll do what you have to do if the adrenalin takes over. It's really a case of mind over matter."
Police would not say how fast the sport utility vehicle was moving or if alcohol was involved.
An OnStar representative in Detroit was unable to comment about what might have caused Mr. MAGEE's system to provide an incorrect location.
The OnStar system uses four separate satellites and a Global Position System receiver to pinpoint a car's location. The Global Position System system uses the amount of time taken for a radio signal to travel from a satellite to a specific location in order to calculate distances.
The technology should be able to determine location to a margin of error of only a few metres. However, certain conditions could have affected the system's accuracy.
"It is possible that anything from a heavily wooded area to inclement weather could impact satellite signals," said Patty Faith, public-relations manager for General Motors Canada.
Downed trees almost two feet in diameter, flattened bushes and deep tire tracks in the snow marked the spot yesterday afternoon where Mr. MAGEE's sport utility vehicle left Herald Road. Friends and co-workers of the Willow Beach native comforted one another at the accident site and recalled a happy and hardworking young man.
A bouquet of flowers with a red ribbon inscribed with the words "Pals Forever" was nailed to a nearby tree.
"You'd never find a better kid in your whole life," said a close family friend who wished to remain anonymous. "I've known him since he was just a boy and he was the nicest person. I'm just devastated."
But some locals weren't surprised to hear about the accident. Rusty SMITH works at 404 Auto Recycling, which sits at the top of the hillside at the corner of Herald and Kennedy Roads. He recalled rolling his van near the intersection two summers ago after a near-miss with another vehicle driving in his lane.
"That road is just treacherous," he said. "It's really narrow and there aren't any shoulders."
The speed limit along Herald Road is 50 kilometres an hour, but Mr. SMITH said "people always speed along the road." The road can get very slippery in snow or rain, he added.
