Kudos again to the gentlemen
who jumped in the icy waters to help her."

Woman whose car went into Lake Ontario
recalls freightening experience
INCIDENT: FIRE and ExplosionFirstly, a fire/explosion at Law and Orders restaurant. They were infamous for the large bucket of fake fries on the roof. Hubby has stopped there. They were on highway #7.
What is sad is that a restaurant in nearby Carleton Place also burned down in January, Moose McGuire's. [What a few days journey! We drove by as they were picking up the debris in early January. ]

Comments on Lake 88 (5 photos) say that local residents heard the blast 5km away. Thankfully, no one was hurt.AFTER
INCIDENT DrivingSecondly, another fatal truck/car incident on Highway #7. It is NOT a surprise.
A passenger vehicle and a tractor trailer collided head on when the passenger vehicle crossed the centre line. The 49-year-old male driver of the passenger car, from Orleans, ON, died at scene.
A truck driver rammed into a young mother's car a month ago, along the same stretch.
It's 60km/hour driving up the hill to the stop lights.
Trucks and truckers are driving awfully fast. We are always passed on highway #7 on our way into the city. We often see unsafe driving incidents. People are impatient, passing on the shoulder in haste.
INCIDENT in Perth
Last week a woman crossed the intersection (vimeo video), running a red in front of me. Thankfully I was watching her, in anticipation of her turning right. Instead, she went through the red light. Self-defence is very important.
The dashcam has been capturing these incidents. I'm starting to wonder how frequent they are in general. I'm always happy to see hubby arrive home from his trips to town. He often has stories about dangerous driving while on deliveries. People are complacent and doing silly things.
