Tragic Death Serves to Remind Us What to Do in a Accident
Return to Blog 

A 22-year old Fergus man died after crashing his car on Highway 7/8 near the Foundry Street exit last week. He was in a single vehicle crash around 11 pm on a foggy night. He survived the initial crash and was walking on the highway when he was struck by a second vehicle and killed.

This is a good opportunity to review what you should do in the event of an accident:

  1. Stop.  If you are in an accident and you leave the scene you may be subject to criminal charges.
  2. If the damage to the vehicles involved is over $2000, or if someone is injured, or if someone is driving impaired call police. They will advise you what to do, and they will arrive as soon as possible. You should
  3. If no one is injured and the damage appears to be under $2000 cal or attend the Collision Reporting Centre within 24 hours. These are police run faciltites to assist you in reporting auto accidents.
  4. If your accident is on the highway, or if you break down on the highway the MTO recommends you:
    1. Stop as far off the roadway as possible.
    2. If you are in a live lane of traffic STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE with the seatbelt on and call 911 for emergency help.
    3. Put your four-way flashers on.
    4. If you are on the shoulder and can safely exit your vehicle you may consider waiting well off the road on the grassy shoulder. Call 911 and follow their instructions.
  5. Never attempt to cross a highway on foot as rates of speed are extremely high and hard to judge and drivers may not see you.
