Stittsville Councillor Shad Qadri says he’s asked the city’s traffic department to review resident concerns about the Carp-Hazeldean intersection.  But if you read between the lines, it doesn’t look like this intersection is dangerous enough to warrant any immediate changes.

In his weekly newsletter published on Thursday, Qadri shared the most recent collision data available from 2015.  The Carp-Hazeldean intersection had 10 reported collisions, ranking it 167th on the list of intersections with the most reported incidents. (By comparison, the intersection of Hunt Club and Riverside was the worst in the city with 60 collisions.)

Police search for damaged sedan after Highway 7 hit and run

Did you hear sirens racing down Hazeldean Road towards Highway 7 this morning around breakfast?  They were heading to the scene of a vehicle rollover on Highway 7 near the Hazeldean intersection.

O.P.P. are now searching for a second car believed to have fled the scene.  Here’s a report from the Ottawa Sun:

Ottawa OPP officers are looking for a sedan with a crushed driver’s side panel after a motorist fled a crash that sent another vehicle flying into the ditch on Hwy. 7 Wednesday morning.

The crash happened at about 7:04 a.m. at Hazeldean Road when two westbound vehicles collided.

One vehicle was sent into the centre median, rolling several times.

The driver was taken to the hospital in Ottawa with injuries that aren’t believed to be life-threatening.

The suspect vehicle is described as a silver or blue late model four-door with damage all along the driver’s side. It was last seen heading towards Carleton Place.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Steven Stewart at 613-270-9171.

CBC: Teen survivor struggling with guilt after fatal crash

From CBC Ottawa:

Hours before a horrific car crash claimed the lives of her two best friends Sunday night, Sommer Foley’s parents told the 17-year-old to have fun swimming at a local quarry, but be home by 10 p.m.

Instead, the Stittsville teen was rushed to hospital, where she remains with serious injuries to her neck, arm and back, which was torn open in the crash. 

“She’s hanging in there, and every day she gets a little bit better,” said Cherie Dillon-Foley, who also said the grief of losing her friends has changed her daughter forever.

“She’s feeling guilty. She’s here and they’re not.” 

***

Partying at the quarry owned by Thomas Cavanagh Construction on Jinkinson Road has been described as a popular pastime for Stittsville teens, and the Foley’s parents don’t blame that tradition.

Jeff Foley is more concerned about how the rampant speculation on social media might be affecting the families of the teens involved in the crash.. 

“That’s all got to stop,” he said. “Everybody gets twisted and confused … it’s garbage.”

CITIZEN: Family of Maddie Clement thanks community for support

From the Ottawa Citizen:

Maddie Clement loved children and animals and would do anything to help a friend, says her uncle.

Another young woman, Michaela Martel, 18, also died in the crash. Two other teens who were in the car remain in hospital. It’s unclear what caused the car to swerve, and investigators continue to interview witnesses.

In an interview Tuesday, Clement’s uncle, Ben Halsall, said his niece had a “heart of gold.”

“She could have done anything if she had set her mind to it,” Halsall said. “She was a very sharp, beautiful, funny girl.”

LETTER: Time to fix Terry Fox-Cope intersection

(Peter Vukovic and his family were on their way to church on Sunday morning, when they were involved in a serious collision at the intersection of Terry Fox Drive and Cope Drive near the Walmart. He posted this photo and open letter to Stittsville councillor Shad Qadri on Facebook. We’re republishing it with his permission. He says his family is shaken, but were not seriously injured. “Thankfully, my daughter asked my wife to sit in the back seat with her for some reason. And everyone was belted. Guardian Angels at work.”)

Councillor Shad Qadri I am begging you to please petition the city to make the intersection of Terry Fox and Cope Drive a fully controlled intersection.

After seeing many near misses and having a few of my own at that intersection over the years, my luck ran out this morning on the way to church. My whole family was transported to hospital by ambulance and the driver of the other car was transported as well.
