Canada fatal crash case focuses on scene safety

WILMOT TOWNSHIP, Canada — If a fire truck had been stationed at the top of a hill to keep traffic away from an accident scene, a Good Samaritan at the bottom of the hill probably would not have died last year, a volunteer firefighter agreed yesterday.

Ashley John (A.J.) Watson was testifying at the trial of Justin Szusz, a volunteer firefighter who drove over the hill and hit a man at the accident scene on Huron Road on Sept. 2.

Szusz's lawyer, Tom Brock, asked Watson if the death could have been prevented if a fire tanker had been blocking traffic at the crest of the hill.
