CP Train accident results in death of Perth resident Delsyn Scott

Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…A terrible Train accident has left Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police looking into how a 20-year-old man from Perth ended up dying after being hit by a train just outside of Perth Monday night. A CP  train scheduled to run from Smiths Falls to Toronto fatally struck Delsyn Stott, as he was walking on the train tracks in Tay Valley Township in the early evening.  My thoughts go out to the friends and family of Delsyn Scott….

Ontario Injury Lawyer :Do you think speed limits should change on Highway 416? Highway 417? Highway 401 ?

Ontario Injury Lawyer, Ontario Accident Lawyers David Hollingsworth www.ottawainjury.ca There has been talk of possibly raising the speed limit an all of Ontario’s 400-series highways. The push is to raise the maximum speed on highways such as Highway 416 , Highway 417 and Highway 401.  The proposed speed limit would be increased to 120 or 130 kilometres an hour.  The argument proposed is that 100 km/h is one of the lowest speed limits around the world for highways. Ontario’s Transportation Minister Bob Chiarelli indicated that  speed is a factor in 20 %  of all fatal Ontario car accidents and that consequently Ontario would not be increasing the speed limit on Ontario’s highways. Chiarelli also noted that Ontario has some of the safest highways in North America and that the Ontario government intended to maintain that record by keeping current speed limits.

I support any actions that reduce car accidents and personal injury. If maintaining a lower speed limit will result in fewer Ontario accidents, then why would we not keep speed limits lower ? Some Ontario drivers would argue that drivers are already abusing the speed limit and driving 120km/hr anyways, so why keep Ontario police busy issuing speeding tickets? If Ontario police weren’t issuing tickets to drivers breaking the 100 km/hr speed limit, they could focus on other distracted and dangerous drivers. What do you think?

Smith Falls Ontario High Jump Accident: Funeral for Josiah Grant

Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth ..My heart goes out to all the family and friends of Josiah Grant.  This was such a terrible accident that took the life of a young and talented kid. What a tragic accident.  The high-jump death of Josiah Grant has left us all asking ourselves..how could this have happened?

Josiah Grant was just 17 years old and was from Smiths Falls, Ontario.  Sadly, Josiah died last Wednesday at Kingston General Hospital a day after the high jump accident when he missed the landing on the safety pad. It was reported that he landed awkwardly and suffered some “scrapes and bruises”, but remained conscious. The 2 teachers administered first aid and called Josiah’s father who brought him to a Kingston hospital , where Josiah lapsed into a coma. He never came out of it.

This accident calls into question the safety practices that have been established for students.  The School Board has an obligation to ensure the safety of its students.  Accidents like this should never happen. My heart goes out to everyone who knew Josiah….

Kanata Accident : Ottawa weather and icy roads results in serious personal injury.

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth.. Wow, it was absolutely freezing out there today in Ottawa and the ice on Ottawa’s roads was deceiving.  Ottawa’s icy roads caused three Kanata accidents within 15 minutes today. One of the Kanata accidents involved a driver being extricated from his vehicle after an accident with a snow plow at the intersection of Campeau Drive and March Road this morning. Ottawa Firefighters responded to the accident at 10:31 a.m., by removing the passenger’s car door to access the driver who was treated for serious personal injury and transported to an Ottawa hospital by Ottawa paramedics. The driver of the plow did not appear to be injured.

Ottawa Fire crews also responded to 2 other Kanata accidents this morning. A 3 vehicle accident at the intersection of Robertson Road and Eagleson Road seriously injured one male driver and he was treated and transported to an Ottawa hospital by Ottawa paramedics. One of the three vehicles in the crash was a police car, but thankfully the officer did appear to suffer personal injury. The third Ottawa accident involved a minivan and a passenger car crashed on Hazeldean Road near Young Road in Katimavik around the same time, but thankfully there was no personal injury.

Please take care out there on our Ottawa roads. Take extra care when driving during this cold winter weather. Cold temperatures create black ice conditions and icy roads that often don’t look slippery. Drive safely.

Ottawa weather conditions, 10 cm of snow fall expected. Ottawa lawyer David Hollingsworth reminding you to drive, bike and walk safely and get out your snow tires.

Well Ottawa..it’s coming…Ottawa’s first significant snowfall of the season is coming tomorrow night and it sounds like it could be a messy one. Environment Canada has issued a weather alert for Tuesday night that warns us all to be cautious for the first winter storm of the fall. The winter alert indicated that snow and possibly freezing rain are possible from Belleville to Prescott and Russell to Bon Echo Park, including the City of Ottawa and Gatineau. They are calling for close to ten centimetres of snow may be possible in some areas by Wednesday morning. Cold air means that precipitation will fall as either snow or a mix of snow and rain, with a chance of freezing rain.

 Please be careful out there on the roads..It’s easy to forget how slippery the roads can be.  If you don’t already have an appointment to get those winter tires on, now is the time! 

A note to pedestrians and cyclist. ..Please be extra cautious and really be aware of the cars and vehicles around you.  Wait and check before crossing the street, even if it indicates for you to go.  Cars may be skidding through that intersection.
