Ottawa wrongful death accident Merivale Road: Ottawa Police our support.

Personal Injury Lawyer Ottawa David Hollingsworth . Ottawa Police are asking for witnesses to a fatal accident that occurred last Sunday, June 3, 2012 on Withrow Avenue at Merivale Road. The fatal accident  occurred at 2:20 p.m. when a vehicle travelling eastbound on Withrow Avenue was making a right hand turn onto Merivale Road and tragically hit a 66 year old woman. The vehicle involved was a black 2008 Acura being driven by a 20 year old man.  A male passenger was also in the vehicle at the time.  Sadly, she died in an Ottawa hospital, succumbing to her personal injuries. My thoughts are with her family and friends and this incredibly difficult time. Not only have they lost a loved one, they do not have any answers.

The Ottawa police need our help.  If you saw this accident or have any information  relating to this terrible accident, please contact Detective Nigel Emaman of the Ottawa Police Service Traffic Collision Investigation Section at 613-236-1222, ext. 2474.

Ottawa injury lawyer supports Ottawa police aiming to reduce Ottawa accidents by targeting distracted Ottawa drivers.

www.ottawainjury.ca Ottawa Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth.. From April 17-19, 20 Ottawa Traffic Enforcement Team, monitored the intersection of Bank Street and Champlain Avenue and issued tickets to distracted Ottawa drivers.    The Ottawa Police officers monitored Ottawa traffic for a total of 81/2 hours over a period of 3 days.  In total, 240 tickets were issued: 97 for Operating a motor vehicle while using a hand-held communication device, 18 for seat belt infractions and 125 tickets for other Highway Traffic Act related offences.  The current fine for using a hand-held device while driving is $155. 

I’m surprised to see so many fines .  It is so obvious that driving and talking on the phone is not worth the risk.  There are so many wireless devices on the market that allow one to talk on the phone while driving; there really are no excuses. Please do not distract yourself. Answer the call later, pull over or invest on a Bluetooth.  Drive safely out there !                                                                                              -Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth
