    Ottawa man charged with careless driving after QEW crash: OPP

    An Ottawa man has been charged with careless driving after a crash on the Queen Elizabeth Way on Tuesday in Mississauga.

    Ontario Provincial Police say a vehicle was travelling westbound on the QEW west of Hurontario Street at about 3 p.m. when it hit debris on the highway and was struck from behind by another vehicle.

    The 22-year-old accused was driving a pickup truck, which swerved to avoid the first collision, and then moved into the path of a tractor trailer. The tractor trailer driver lost control, hit a right-side guard rail and jack-knifed across the westbound QEW lanes.

      Bystanders tried to save motorcyclist and passenger in Montreal Road crash


      The woman who tried to administer CPR to a dying motorcyclist in Sunday's fatal crash says it will take her some time to recover.


      "I think it's the worst thing I've ever seen in my life and it's going to take, I think, a little bit of time to get over," Alexandra Mackwood told CBC News.


      On Sunday afternoon a 49-year-old man and 34-year-old woman on a motorcycle died after a collision with three other vehicles on Montreal Road. Police said the incident happened near the Highway 174 off ramp just after 4:30 p.m.


      Mackwood was driving eastbound when her boyfriend alerted her to the crash up ahead.

      "I heard him say 'Oh God' and looked up and saw a helmet go flying," she said.

        2 girls in hospital, elderly man critical after driver loses control of van

        An elderly driver is in critical condition and two girls were sent to hospital after the man lost control of his vehicle and struck several pedestrians and vehicles in Gatineau's Hull sector.

        Police say the driver's van was travelling on Daniel-Johnson Street near Mont-Bleu Boulevard on Monday afternoon when it struck a parked vehicle along the curb.

        The van then hit two girls, aged 11 and 2, who were walking along the sidewalk. Police said the eldest was thrown 15 to 20 metres in the air, while the youngest suffered minor injuries.

        Both were taken to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario with non-life threatening injuries.

          2nd cyclist struck on O'Connor Street bike lane pedalled world without mishap — until now


          Gary King pedalled thousands of kilometres around the world without a single mishap — until he was struck by a car Wednesday afternoon during his first spin along the new O'Connor Street bike lane, right here in his home town.

          Adding to the irony, King, 56, was on his way home from a meeting on safe cycling networks when he collided with a car pulling out of the parking lot behind Mamma Teresa Ristorante at Somerset Street. The avid cyclist, who has biked from California to Florida and across several European countries, said he was heading north and had only been travelling in the lane for a few blocks when the vehicle suddenly emerged and "bounced" him into the street.

            Twelve people were injured after two separate multi-vehicle pileups at a construction zone on Highway 417 eastbound on Sunday night.

            The first happened east of the Greenbank Road exit near Woodroffe Avenue, where construction crews had laid out roadway markers to reduce lanes, at about 10:15 p.m., Ottawa paramedics said in a media release.

            A minor crash occurred between a Chevrolet sedan and a GMC pickup truck, and both vehicles pulled onto the right shoulder of the highway, paramedics said. No one was injured at this point.

                Accused in death of construction worker, company linked to death of other workers


                Olivier Bruneau, 24, died in March 2016, when a large chunk of ice struck him. The ice had detached itself from a nine-storey deep excavation wall where he was working on Preston Street in Ottawa.

                Olivier Bruneau's employer, Bellai Brothers Construction Ltd., and his supervisor, Léo Simard, are among those accused of failing to take all reasonable precautions to prevent the accident. A look back at workplace accidents over the past 20 years, from 1996 to 2016, revealed Bellai Brothers Construction and Simard were convicted of offences related to the death of another worker.
