Sad.. sooooo sad...

The driver in this story is my first cousin. We grew up together, he is like a little brother to me.

He has two broken arms, a broken leg, and they operated for over 5 hours to put in pins and plates and set the breaks. he is physically ok. Emotionally he'll never be the same. The lone driver of the other vehicle is his best friend and was to be the Best man at their wedding in this coming august. He was not physically hurt much at all. bumps and bruises. but emotionally as well a basket case.

Life is short folks...cherish it....don't screw around.

Woman dies in collision


Fri. Apr 17 - 9:01 AM
 MARBLE MOUNTAIN — One person is dead after a head-on crash in Cape Breton early Thursday morning.

  Paramedics and emergency crews received reports of the two-vehicle collision in the Marble Mountain, Inverness County, region at 7:20 a.m., said Krista Beck, spokeswoman for Emergency Health Services.

  Christina Louise Crant, 26, died at the scene. The vehicle she was travelling in crossed the centre line and collided with a pickup, an RCMP news release said.

  Her 29-year-old fiance had been the driver of the car, RCMP Sgt. Brian Rehill said.

  The man had been trapped in­side when emergency crews ar­rived. He was airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sci­ences Centre in Halifax with se­rious injuries, Sgt. Rehill said.

  There was no update on his condition later in the day.

  Another man, the driver and lone occupant of the truck, was taken to the Strait Richmond Hospital by ambulance.

  Police did not know the extent of the man's injuries. He is be­lieved to be in his 30s, RCMP said.

  The victims are all from the River Denys area, Sgt. Rehill said.

  Neither alcohol nor weather is believed to be a factor in the crash.

  "Roads were dry at the time, so the matter's under investiga­tion," Sgt. Rehill said. "We're trying to figure out what hap­pened here."
