A vehicle rollover on Saturday night took the lives of 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy, both of whom died in hospital. 4 others were in the SUV, and are being treated in hospital for serious to life-threatening injuries.
York Regional Police claim that they searched the scene of the accident and cleared the site at 7am Sunday, nearly 12 hours after the accident occurred.
But a Toronto Sun photographer and reporter who arrived on scene Sunday morning discovered a number of items among the remaining vehicular debris, including marijuana.
A small tin of pot, three cellphones, Sick Kids hospital medical records, a library book, blue rubber medical gloves, and lip gloss were found at the scene and turned into police, according to The Toronto Sun HERE.
York Region’s Inspector Russ Bellman said there’s no indication that the vehicle’s occupants were under the influence of drugs.
This isn’t the 1st tragic crash in Vaughan. On September 27 at Kipling Avenue and Kirby Road, an accident just 4km from Saturday’s crash at Teston Road near Pine Valley Drive, accused drunk driver Marco Muzzo’s SUV collided with a mini-van, killing three children and their grandfather.
Why does Vaughan seem to be a magnet for dangerous driving and serious crashes? A woman living close to where Saturday’s crash occurred said many drivers go well over 100 km/h, despite the fact that the posted limit is 60 km/h. Is speed the problem? Or does Vaughan play host to a number of bad drivers?
Is there no adequate lighting on stretches of Vaughan road? Are the roads poorly designed for the amount of traffic they currently handle? Does it come down to a sense of entitlement with many of the wealthy, young drivers in the area?
