Game cited in racing death
By Tara BRAUTIGAM, Canadian Press, Thurs., January 26, 2006
Toronto -- The fantasy world of video game street racing may have influenced two teenage boys accused of piloting real-life luxury cars in a high-speed contest that claimed the life of a taxi driver, police said yesterday.
A copy of Need for Speed, a game that allows players to select high-end cars and race them through crowded urban areas, was found on the front seat of one of the suspect's cars following the late-night crash.
"Here we have, in real life, two guys driving high-end cars at a high rate of speed in an urban area," said Toronto police Det. Paul LOBSINGER.
"I don't think it's a giant leap for people to say, 'Wow, how does this go together?' "
The 18-year-old Friends were racing a pair of Mercedes Benzes through one of the city's wealthiest neighbourhoods Tuesday night, reaching speeds of 140 kilometres an hour in a 50-kilometre zone, police allege.
The taxi was hit while making a left turn onto the road, killing 46-year-old driver Tahir KHAN.
The married father of two young children immigrated to Canada six years ago from Pakistan, said Jim BELL, general manager of Diamond Taxicab Association.
"He was working to… reunite his family in Canada, and lived the Canadian dream," Bell said. "Tahir's dream for him and his family has been ended."
The force of the crash left the taxi wrapped around a utility pole, plumes of steam still rolling off the wreckage as investigators sifted through the twisted metal.
Despite finding an auto-racing game at the scene of the crime, LOBSINGER stressed the game wasn't solely to blame.
"Look, in the proper perspective… if everyone imitated a video game such as that, we'd have to ban cars," he said.
The driver of the Mercedes involved in the crash suffered a few scratches. The other driver fled the scene, police said.
Alexander RYAZANOV and Wang-Piao ROSS are charged with criminal negligence causing death. ROSS also faces a charge of failing to stop after an accident causing death.
RYAZANOV and ROSS appeared in court yesterday with their bail hearings rescheduled to tomorrow and Monday, respectively.
The incident is the latest in what some say is a growing problem of street racing all across Canada.
The increase in street racing incidents led the former Liberal government to introduce legislation requiring judges to revoke the driver's licence of anyone convicted of street racing.
The bill failed to pass into law before the government fell in November.

Man becomes city's 64th homicide
By Jennifer LEWINGTON, Page A16
A 26-year-old Mississauga man shot in the downtown core early yesterday became Toronto's 64th homicide of the year.
Police identified the victim as Dennis Kwame OPPONG and said he died in hospital as a result of gunshot wounds to the head.
The incident occurred in front of a Toyota dealership next door to The Globe and Mail on Front Street near Spadina Avenue, a few blocks from the city's late-night club district.
Homicide investigators are seeking the assistance of the occupants of five vehicles travelling eastbound on Front Street at the time of the homicide, one of which was a taxi. Surveillance videotape is also being reviewed.
About 3 a.m., Globe and Mail security guards heard a noise that "sounded like gunshots," said Jamil KHAN, manager of facilities and services for The Globe.
When they went outside to investigate, they saw a man with "trauma to the head" lying on the north sidewalk in front of the service bay door of the car dealership, he said.
The security guards immediately contacted police and paramedics.
Police cordoned off Front Street west of Spadina for most of the day yesterday as detectives and forensic experts searched for indicators of a possible motive for the shooting and other clues.
witnesses: or anyone else with information about the incident can contact Toronto Police at 416-808-1404 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
The number of homicides in the city so far this year is 11 fewer than it was at the same time in 2005, a tally that by year's end reached 78. There have been 26 gun homicides so far this year, exactly half the number of gun homicides in all of 2005.
This year's homicide total of 64 so far matches the total for all of 2004.

Taxi driver killed in street-racer collision
From Torstar News Service, Page 3
Two street-racing teenagers have been charged with criminal negligence causing death after a collision that killed a taxi driver who was to become a Canadian citizen tomorrow, police say.
Cab driver Tahir KHAN had dropped off his last fare and was headed south on Mount Pleasant Road at 10: 20 p.m. Tuesday when one of two Mercedes driven by 18-year-olds racing north at around 140 km/h in the 50 km/h zone T-boned the taxi as it turned left onto Whitehall Road, drilling the cab into a utility pole, police say.
KHAN, 46, died instantly, and the driver of the mangled 1999 model silver Mercedes escaped with just a few scratches. The driver of the other car fled, returning to the scene after ditching his car a few blocks away, posing as a bystander, police say, noting one of the Mercedes drivers had a copy of the popular video game Need For Speed in the car.
KHAN was to become Canadian citizen tomorrow after six years here -- a day he'd long looked forward to, because it meant he was one step closer to being reunited with his wife, whom he hoped to bring over from Pakistan.
The accused are university students -- believed to be studying at Ryerson and York -- and are from North York. One lives in a tony neighbourhood north of the Bridle Path. Police would not say whether the teens' parents own the cars.
And as police yesterday questioned what influence the game may have played and KHAN's Friends grappled with his death, the two accused made a brief court appearance.
“It's a horrible irony,” said Det. Paul LOBSINGER about the presence of the video game. “Some have said this is life imitating art but I don't know,” LOBSINGER said. “Are games the cause? Absolutely not. But, it is rather ironic.&rdquo
Police say alcohol was not a factor.

Cabbie killed by racing Mercedes
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Staff Reporter with files from Nick PRON, Henry STANCU, Dale Anne FREED and David GROSSMAN
Cab driver Tahir KHAN had just dropped off his last fare and was headed south on Mount Pleasant Rd. It was 10: 20 p.m.
Racing north were two Mercedes driven by 18-year-olds, each pushing 140 km/h in a 50 km/h zone, police say. Next to one driver was the popular video game Need For Speed.
As the Mercedes rounded a bend, the taxi made a left turn on to Whitehall Rd. A loud crash shattered the still of Tuesday night.
One of the Mercedes, a silver 1999 model, T-boned the taxi, drilling it into a utility pole, police say.
KHAN, 46, died instantly, and the driver of the mangled Mercedes escaped with just a few scratches. The driver of the other car fled, returning to the scene after ditching his car a few blocks away, posing as a bystander, police say.
It was a tragic end to KHAN's life, which was brimming with hope as he looked forward to becoming a Canadian citizen tomorrow. It was a day he'd long looked forward to, because it meant he was one step closer to being reunited with his wife, whom he hoped to bring over from Pakistan.
The accused are university students -- believed to be studying at Ryerson and York -- and both had attended St. Andrew's College, a prestigious private school in Aurora, graduating in June 2004. One played on St. Andrew's football team, and both were average students who never got in trouble, said head football coach Courtney SHRIMPTON. One of them lives a tony neighbourhood just north of the Bridle Path. Yesterday, police would not comment on whether the cars belonged to the teens' parents.
As police yesterday questioned what influence the game may have played and KHAN's Friends grappled with his death, the two accused made a brief court appearance.
"It's a horrible irony," said Det. Paul LOBSINGER about the presence of the video game, which allows players to choose high-end cars and race them through city streets while being pursued by police cruisers.
"Some have said this is life imitating art but I don't know," said LOBSINGER, adding "a game is a game, but when you get behind the wheel it's reality."
LOBSINGER described the game as an "ultra-violent driving simulation, fighting simulation and criminal simulation."
"But are games the cause?" he asked. "Absolutely not. But, it is rather ironic."
Police say alcohol was not a factor, and that it's not clear if the video game was played before the two went out driving.
"I have no words to explain why this happened," said cabbie Muhammad NASEEM, who was a friend of KHAN's. "He was a very nice man, very quiet, very polite, all the good words you can think of can be used to describe him."
Earlier this week, recalled NASEEM, KHAN had told him that he planned to return home to the district of Jhang, in Pakistan's Punjab region. KHAN's mother was ill and he wanted to be with her. He also looked forward to visiting his brother, sister and wife of 15 years, whom he's helped support since moving to Canada almost six years ago.
He was looking forward to returning home as a Canadian citizen, something he would have become during a citizenship ceremony at the Scarborough Town Centre.
"He was so excited," said KHAN's friend Munir AHMAD, while visiting the coroner's office to identify the body. "He was planning to bring his family here."
Last night, a large group of Friends gathered at the east-end apartment KHAN shared with Shahid HASAN to call his family in Pakistan and break the devastating news.
"He had lots of Friends," said HASAN, who has lived with KHAN for the last five years in Scarborough. "He was a very kind man who was helpful to everyone."
Jim BELL, manager of Diamond Taxi, said KHAN had been with the company for three years and called his death a tragedy for everyone involved.
"Those kids must be feeling absolutely terrible and the parents of these kids who were racing must be feeling devastated."
Charged with criminal negligence causing death are Alexander RYAZANOV and Wang-Piao Dumani ROSS. ROSS is also charged with failing to stop after an accident causing death.
Outside the courtroom where the two teens made a brief appearance at bail court in College Park yesterday, the aunt of one described them as "really good boys."
"It's tragic, it's horrible what happened. Now I am going to be worried about him staying in jail with criminals."
Because lawyers for the pair weren't available, the two must return for separate bail hearings -- ROSS tomorrow and RYAZANOV on Monday. Neither has a criminal record.
The two long-time Friends chatted quietly to each other as they sat in the prisoner's box.
The Crown says it will oppose their release on two grounds: public outrage over the death and the likelihood of reoffending.
