Ontario Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. An accident in Winchester Ontario has left 2 men in the Ottawa Hospital Trauma Unit following an early morning accident yesterday morning. The Winchester accident occurred on County Road 31 when one vehicle is believed to have crossed a centre line and hit another vehicle. Police are investigating why the van may have crossed the line but still have not determined why. Ottawa paramedics were second to arrive at the Winchester accident after they were asked to help the Stormont Dundas and Glengarry Paramedics. Both drivers of both vehicles were trapped in their vehicles and were eventually freed by the Winchester rescue crews. One man was rushed to the Ottawa Hospital Civic Campus with severe trauma including a critical head injury and critical leg injury. The other man was also transported to the Ottawa Hospital Civic Campus with several traumatic injuries and multiple fractures and is in serious, but thankfully stable condition. I wish both men in this accident a full recovery. They have both suffered very severe injuries and will have a long road ahead of them. County Road 31 will be close for Police investigation. If you witnessed this Winchester accident and have any information that may help Ottawa Police, please contact the Police immediately.

What a terrible and tragic start to Easter weekend. Sadly, 2 young university students died on their way home from Trent University to visit their families for Easter. 4 other people also suffered serious personal injuries last night after a terrible accident in Beckwith Township, close to Lanark. The accident took place on Richmond Road, just south of Carleton Place and involved 2 vehicles. Tragically 21-year-old Madeleine Havelock and 22-year-old Thomas Guerette were found trapped in their car and pronounced dead at accident scene. They were travelling with a 21-year-old woman who suffered a severe pelvic fracture and a serious head injury. She remains in critical condition. I hope she is able to fully recover from this devastating accident. I’m so sorry for the Havelock and Guerette families who have lost their children, who had bright futurs ahead. This is a terrible, terrible tragedy.
3 others people were also injured. A 23-year-old man driving suffered a shoulder injury, while his passengers suffered serious personal injuries. One had severe abdominal injuries and a 16-year-old suffered serious injuries to his back and shoulders. They were rushed to the Carleton Place Hospital. I hope they are all able to recover from these injuries.

Ottawa Pedestrian Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth…I wish everyone involved in these Ottawa accidents a full and speedy recovery from their personal injuries. A fourth pedestrian was rushed to an Ottawa hospital yesterday after being struck by a vehicle in central Ottawa.
The latest occurred at about 2:20 p.m. when a 77-year-old man was struck by a SUV at the intersection of Albert and Lyon Streets. He was treated for shoulder and ankle injuries and was transported to an Ottawa hospital.
About half an hour earlier, paramedics treated a female pedestrian for leg injuries after she was struck by a car at the intersection of Elgin Street and Laurier Avenue. The female patient was conscious when paramedics arrived and was sent to an Ottawa hospital in stable condition.
Two other pedestrians were rushed to an Ottawa hospital with serious personal injuries yesterday morning after two accidents occurred within minutes of each other on Bronson Avenue. A 27-year-old woman was struck by a minivan and treated for head and hip injuries at Bronson Avenue and Somerset Street at 9:23 a.m.
Paramedics say another call came in about three minutes later regarding a male pedestrian who was hit at Bronson Avenue and Brewer Way, near Carleton University. In that case, an accident between two vehicles apparently sent one car out of control. Sadly, a 24-year-old Carleton University student was struck and thrown about three metres.
Firefighters say the force of the initial Ottawa accident sent one of the vehicles off the road and into the pedestrian who was standing nearby. As soon as firefighters got to the scene, they started to treat and stabilize the patient who was slipping in and out of consciousness until paramedics arrived and took over. The man was treated for head, facial and leg injuries. He was transported to Ottawa where he was listed in serious but thankfully,stable condition.
A 49-year-old female driver of one of the vehicles was also treated for neck and back injuries. Ottawa police are investigating all four incidents.

Osgoode Car Accident results in death and serious personal injuries: head injury and back injury, Ottawa lawyer
Posted by Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer, Ottawa Accident Lawyer, David Hollingsworth in Ottawa Car Accidents, Ottawa Injury and Accidents, wrongful death on December 3rd, 2010
Ottawa Law Firms, Ottawa Car Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth..Sadly, one person is dead and several others suffered serious personal injury after a serious 3 car crash collision on Stagecoach Road in Osgoode, Ontario. The 31-year-old woman had no vital signs when emergency workers arrived and sadly was pronounced dead at the scene of the Ottawa car accident. Ottawa Paramedics treated four other adults and transported them to an Ottawa hospital to be treated 2 of the victims for serious personal inuries. The car accident occurred at about 8 a.m. this morning. Ottawa Police are continuing to gather evidence at the Ottawa accident scene. Stagecoach Road remains closed between Cabin and Snake Island Roads. My thoughts go out to all of the accident victims involved in this tragic accident. My condolences to the family and friends of Jennifer Sayer-Gaal and I wish her husband Aarom a full and sppedy recovery.
OTTAWA – When Diane Morin heard the sound of buckling metal from her home on Stagecoach Road on Friday morning, she knew there’d been a terrible crash.
She raced to the window and then outside, where she saw a woman sitting down on the lawn next to her Honda Civic, calling for help and for someone to please call her husband.
Morin raced back inside, getting a phone and blankets. A neighbour had already dialed 911.
After wrapping up the woman on the lawn to keep her warm she headed to a totalled white Chevy Silverado pickup truck. Inside the truck, she saw a man desperately trying to hold up the head of an unconscious woman in the passenger seat. The truck had been T-boned on the passenger side.
“He was with her and he kept saying, ‘Honey, talk to me. Talk to me.’ He was holding her.”
There was nothing he or Morin could do.
“I wrapped her in a blanket, too.”
The 31-year-old, Jennifer Sayer-Gaal, died at the scene, where firefighters and paramedics were unable to revive her.
As emergency responders tried to bring her back to life, her husband, who was badly injured, didn’t want to sit down.
“He just kept saying, ‘Take care of my wife, take care of my wife,’ and a paramedic said, ‘Well, you have to sit down.’”
He did, and asked Morin to hold his head until paramedics brought a neck brace.
The crash, which involved three vehicles, occurred at 8 a.m. on Stagecoach Road between Cabin Road and Snake Island Road in the city’s south end.
At the scene hours later, collisions investigator Const. Alain Boucher said the pickup truck had been heading south along Stagecoach when – for reasons unknown – it drifted into the northbound lane. The truck sideswiped a northbound Honda Civic, sending it and the woman inside into the ditch.
But the impact sent the truck into a spin, and it was T-boned by a northbound Toyota Sienna minivan.
The 32-year-old driver of the pickup truck – Sayer-Gaal’s husband, Aaron Gaal – was taken to hospital with serious head and back injuries. He was listed in serious but stable condition.
In the minivan, a 53-year-old woman in the passenger seat was treated for serious chest and back injuries, including fractured ribs and a partially collapsed lung, said paramedic spokesman J.P. Trottier. She was also taken to hospital and listed in serious but stable condition. The 50-year-old man driving the minivan was treated for injuries to his back and one of his arms. He was taken to hospital in stable condition.
The lone 34-year-old woman travelling in the Civic was treated at the scene for minor injuries and didn’t need to be taken to hospital.
Stagecoach Road – about 30 kilometres south of downtown Ottawa, between Osgoode and Metcalfe – was closed for about five hours between Cabin and Snake Island roads and then reopened.

According to Department of Transport Road Accident Statistics, the number of car accidents caused by weather and snow covered roads increase in winter by 267 percent. Obviously we can’t control the weather conditions but we can reduce car accident statistics considerably by replacing the tires according to the weather conditions. Many Ontario residents and those who live in colder areas, change their car tires prior to start of winter season and again in spring or summer. This is done for the sake of safety as the experienced car drivers know that the ambient temperature is directly related with their tires performance. The research also indicates that ambient temperatures below 7 degrees celcius potentially trigger hazardous driving conditions. Insurance companies statistics also support this view stating that the increase in car accident damage insurance claims increases drastically with the onset of colder weather. This is why it is extremely important to ensure you have tires that are in good condition. Test rides have proved that whenever temperatures go below 7ºC, tire rubber become hard and that results in less road grip. Fitting cold weather tires to our vehicles before winter season is the best solution to drive safely, even during the winter, rainy or snowing season, when temperatures are likely to go down below 7C. Cold weather tires provide better mileage while normal tires reduce the mileage up to 20 %. Cold weather tires contain more rubber that minimizes the hardening effect and gives extra grip in wet, cold or icy conditions. As a result, we get shorter breaking distances. Although it may be a hassle, spending a few minutes for tires replacement at the change of weather twice a year for the sake of safety is not only justified, it is essential. Even after adapting this practice, don’t forget to continually check the tires condition and pressure regularly.
