Ontario accident kills 1, injures 3

Authorities in Ontario have reported that two accidents on Highway 17 near Marathon left a 35-year-old man dead and three others injured on Feb. 20. Officers with the Ontario Provincial Police responded to the accident scene north of Lake Superior at approximately 7 p.m. Police did not immediately say if the accidents had been caused by road conditions or driver error.

4-way intersections and pedestrians

Pedestrians who are crossing roads in Ontario might want to pay special attention to their surroundings at four-way stops that are not controlled by traffic lights. Because vehicles and pedestrians at these kinds of intersections must use their own discretion, the first-come, first-served system can have some grey areas.

Whiplash injuries in car accidents

Individuals in Ontario who are in car crashes may suffer from whiplash. Whiplash occurs when the head snaps back and forth on the neck and may commonly occur in a rear-end collision. While it is usually not a serious injury, whiplash causes pain and some immobility in many cases. However, the condition has the potential to be very serious, and around 3 to 5 per cent of individuals with whiplash spend a year or more on disability.

Ontario tractor-trailer accident kills 2, injures 1

An accident involving a tractor-trailer and another vehicle resulted in the deaths of two people in Ontario on Feb. 3. Residents who live in the area questioned contractors' efforts to maintain the highway where the accident occurred, though police were still working to determine the cause of the accident at the time of reporting.
