Cars hit deer

"Last week there were two incidents of cars hitting deers on Highway 400. Neither drivers was seriously injured. On Sunday, November 9, Gordon Walker of Newmarket was southbound on Highway 400 south of Innisfil Beach Road when he struck a deer in the centre lane. On Thursday, November 13, Laurence Blake of RR 2, Bradford, was northbound on Highway 400 south of Highway 88 when he struck a deer in the driving lane."

Dead in his tracks

"This car certainly stopped. And it was quite a while before it got started again. This was the scene at the corner of Highway 88 and 5 sideroad last Saturday morning. This was only one of the many cars buried in the snow. The cars had to be moved out of the way before the plows were able to make a path through the high drifts that built up on the road."

Trys to pass, lands in ditch

"Following an accident on Wednesday, April 14, on Highway 88, west of Middletown Rd., a car driven by a Bradford man went into the ditch after police say he tried to pass a car which had stopped to make a left turn. A vehicle driven by Giovanni Capociama, 65, of R.R. 1, Bradford, was travelling west along Highway 88 and had slowed to turn left onto Middletown Rd. According to police, a second westbound car attempted to overtake Capociama on the left, and skidded into the ditch on the west side of Middletown Rd. The driver and passenger of the second vehicle, Christopher J. Fawns, 17, of Bradford, and Una Fawns, 16, sustained cuts and bruises. Mr. Fawns was charged by Provincial Constable Lorne Yakiwchuk of the Bradford detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police, with careless driving and improper passing."

Winter damage

"Miraculously, the driver of this truck survived. The flat bed tractor trailer had been carrying a load of steel south on Highway 400 when just south of the Highway 88 intersection it spun around and overturned in the west ditch facing northward. The car was demolished, the seat and windshield being forced out."

Winter returns, halts all activity

"When Southern Ontario residents put away all their snowmobiling equipment and winter clothes, they thought the long, cold winter had ended, but Old Man Winter decided he still had some say in the matter. Over a foot of snow covered southern Simcoe County and winds gusting up to 50 miles an hour created 15-foot drifts that blocked traffic, closed businesses, schools, and stranded travellers. The Ontario Provincial Police detachment had their hands full like everybody else. The detachment has waded through only a handful of accident reports and so far they report four property damage collisions involving six vehicles on Highway 400 between Highways 88 and 89. Five property damage collisions involving six vehicles south of Highway 88 were also looked into. There are still numerous accidents that have yet to be fully investigated."
