Ottawa Lawyers, Ottawa Law Firms, David Hollingsworth …Regrettably, a man was killed in a strange Ottawa accident when the car he was driving struck a hydro pole on Carp Road near Rothbourne Road, just south of the Queensway. A large rock smashed through the windshield of a car and hit the driver in the head moments before the vehicle slammed into a hydro pole on Carp Road Monday morning. Fire, paramedics and police were called to the scene near Rothbourne Road, just south of the Queensway, after 10 a.m. The lone man, believed to be in his 40s, was trapped in the vehicle and unconscious. Ottawa paramedics said in a news release they were unable to get to the man for immediate treatment and he was declared dead at 10:30 a.m. Fire department spokesman Marc Messier said a rock the size of two fists had hit the driver in the head. A witness who contacted the Ottawa Citizen said the driver was hit by a large rock moments before the accident, and paramedics reported that several large rocks were found in the car after the accident. Ottawa Collisions investigators are trying to determine how the rock ended up smashing through the windshield — if it was kicked up by the vehicle once it took the ditch, or if it came from elsewhere. Anyone who witnessed this Ottawa accident is asked to contact the collisions police unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 2481.
