Brothers charged after deadly car crash in Ontario

Why can't these types of testosteronic retards grow up?

They've killed two innocent people. I hope they get severe punishment for this.



Two brothers in their 20s have been charged with criminal negligence causing death after a seven-vehicle crash that killed two women in Brampton, northwest of Toronto.
Police say two men were each driving a car south on Highway 50, toward Mayfield Road, north of Major MacKenzie Drive before the crash.
They say it appears one of the cars, an Audi, went out of control and slammed into a Pontiac Grand Am carrying 49-year-old Cynthia Dougherty of Palgrave, Ont., and 44-year-old Maria Dalsass of Beeton, Ont.
Witnesses told police they saw two vehicles speeding before one of them careered across the road just after noon.
The collision set off a chain reaction, said Const. Adam Minnion of Peel Regional Police.
The Grand Am, also travelling south at the time of the accident, was left smashed on all sides, police said. Both women were pronounced dead at the scene.

Drivers and passengers of the other cars were treated for minor injuries on the scene. The two men who were charged were not injured.
Minnion said it was "quite astonishing" that more people were not hurt, considering the seriousness of the crash.
Steven Machado, 22, and his brother Brian, 27, both of Mississauga, were taken into custody. A bail hearing was scheduled Sunday.
Police seized two vehicles, a badly damaged Audi and a BMW, under Ontario's new street racing laws, applied to drivers travelling more than 50 km/h over the speed limit.

So many lives destroyed and disrupted.

With the new speeding laws in Ontario it is likely the courts (this one will be criminal with a judge as opposed to traffic with a jp) will reflect the seriousness with which law enforcement and the provincial government now take this nonsense.

How come it was never as dangerous back in the muscle car days? We had the odd wreck, but seldom was another car involved.

Photo radar can slow down very fast traffic.

It worked last time and it will work this time.

If they never took away photo radar those people would be alive today.

YOu don't remember why? Where did the drag racing take palce? Where did we "rat race"?

I grew up in Langley BC and remember racing was done down at the end of Latimer Rd.... and we usually rat raced out in the middle of no where....away from traffic, late at night....... not in the middle of the day down a crowded freeway

Photo radar gets a great pic of a licence plate. The owner gets a notice in the mail a month or so later. It doesn't catch the person behind the wheel. Photo radar is easy to beat. If you're breaking the rules anyhow, you just lift your plates. No plate - no bust. You need an actual cop on the street.

Oh. I remember why. Those were drag days and we blocked off traffic on a quiet quarter mile of straight, smooth road. The question is rhetorical. Interpret it as: "These too fast too furious idiots are too stupid to be behind steering wheels"

They will probably get 20 days of house arrest and be racing again in no time.

Photo radar is just a tax grab. It doesn't stop dangerous driving. Its a revenue stream -- period.

They're talking impound now. I'd love to see the California Crunch brought here. You're busted, say bye-bye to the Blauplunkt - and everything else.

That's the oher difference between then and now..... it was OUR money that made that car go fast....not Mommy and Daddies....so we had more "invested" in ensuring that car made it to the end in one peice.

Unprovable rhetoric.

This was not the 401 either, it's a secondary highway (50). Here's a section of it:



Cameras don't instill common sense and safe driving skills. They don't eliminate stupidity. They take photos. Police and police vehicles do the physical work.

Photo radar would not have prevented a tragedy such as is, photo radar is tax generator, not a nail belt

One of the people that killed the mother and father of the young girl(leaving her an orphan) just got a nice hefty sentence. House f**king arrest. Yep. There's good ol' Canadian justice right there.

Weren't both cars already destroyed in the accident? If that was the case, what they do in California unfortunately would not do any good.

I think at least 5 years in jail for these jag-offs if they are responsible for someone else's death(or serious debilitating injuries) would be a step in the right direction.

Vehicular manslaughter, criminal negligence resulting in death - and neither carry a stiff enough sentence. A lifetime prohibition from vehicke ownership and driving after a good stiff jail term MIGHT teach them. Then again, some folks just can't be taught.

California Crunch is for street racers caught in the act.

Jailtime? Forget it. Possibly house arrest, possibly loss of driver's licenses for a year.

Now, if those boys had been black and driving beat up cars, we might have a different end to the story.

I know about the Crunch. This would follow under that, as witnesses were saying the two brothers were racing at the time.
