Further to my last post on the possible sim-lawyer in the possible sim-crash case, I recall this big late night crash from a couple of months ago.
Do they stage crashes to keep the emergency services trained? Do they use these crashes to pass laws or create awareness to real societal problems, like drinking and driving?
If they do, is it amoral? Is it a noble lie? A noble hoax?
Should those we trust be allowed to lie to us for any reason?
The answer has to be NO.
PICKERING — An Oshawa man was one of two men killed in a collision involving a vehicle travelling the wrong way on Hwy. 401 in Pickering early Saturday.
The multi-vehicle crash in the eastbound lanes east of Brock Road claimed the lives of men from Oshawa and Scarborough, Ontario Provincial Police said.
Alexis Febles-Madrazo, 33 of Oshawa, and Rahaman Hussain, 25 of Scarborough, were killed.
An investigation continues and police are appealing for witnesses in the crash.
Whitby OPP began to receive reports of a Mazda Tribute travelling the wrong way on Hwy. 401 just after 2:30 a.m., said Sergeant Kerry Schmidt. Witnesses reported a westbound vehicle had been involved in a collision with an eastbound Volkswagen near Harwood Avenue in Ajax, he said.
Just minutes later, at 2:33 a.m., the wrong-way vehicle was involved in a crash with two other vehicles east of Brock Road in Pickering. Officers arriving on scene found the Tribute along with a Mazda 3 and a Chevrolet Cruze. The Mazdas had sustained the heaviest damage.
