Don't swerve for animals, police say after fatal crash
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Wed. November 8, 2006
The death of a 20-year-old driver whose car crashed while swerving to avoid a deer has sparked another police warning about the increasingly common highway hazard.
There were six such collisions on local roads over 24 hours ending yesterday morning, including one that led to the death of Bradley SLOETJES of Lucknow.
"It can happen in any area," said Lambton Ontario Provincial Police Const. John Reurink. "It's a hazard we have to put up with. Be very careful and be watchful of the road ahead of you."
Lambton County roads have been littered with more than 100 deer-vehicle collisions this fall, including 25 last month. There were five more crashes there Monday and yesterday, police said.
No one was hurt in any of those collisions.
But a similar crash in Huron County proved fatal Monday night, police said.
It was shortly before 9 p.m. when a car driving along Lucan Line in Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh Township swerved trying to avoid a deer, police said.
The car went into a ditch, striking a utility pole and rolling several times. SLOETJES, 20, was taken to Wingham hospital, where he died.
Reurink urged drivers to avoid swerving when faced with a deer, or any other animal, on the road.
"The actual swerving (could) cause you to put yourself in a far more dangerous situation," he said. "You're changing the direction of your vehicle and you will lose control."
The period from September to November is considered deer-rutting season, when the animals mate and migrate.
The provincial transportation ministry says 24 people were killed in 22 collisions with wildlife over a four-year period ending in 2003.

Don HILLMAN, Doctor And Educator: (1925-2006)
For 35 years, Don HILLMAN saved the lives of children in Africa, Asia and South America -- sometimes from the middle of a shooting war
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S9
Ottawa -- Pediatrician Don HILLMAN couldn't contain his excitement when he arrived home one day in 1969 to tell his wife the big news. A brand new medical school was to be established at Kenya's University of Nairobi, and his name had been put forward as the person to go and help it get off the ground.
Liz HILLMAN, herself a pediatrician, agreed the opportunity was too good to pass up. Two weeks later, the entire HILLMAN clan, including five children under the age of 12, uprooted themselves from their comfortable home in Montreal and started a new life half a world away.
Moving to Africa turned out to be a bit of a culture shock, to say the least. There were lots of things to adapt to over the next two years, as Doctor HILLMAN and his wife helped develop the university's clinical services and establish a teaching hospital, complete with students in classrooms and on hospital wards, focusing on the management of disease. The HILLMANs also came up with something different. They thought there should be a focus on the child and family life, on disease prevention and public health. Dr. HILLMAN helped the university's medical faculty recognize the importance of health in rural areas, and of alternate sites for learning.
Those two years in Kenya were just the beginning of Doctor HILLMAN's adventures in international child health, a personal crusade that took him all over the world and made him many Friends, including hundreds of medical students who saw him not just as their professor, but as a mentor. Over the years, he was to save the lives of many children and, by training local doctors, to help the yet unborn have a fighting chance. Over a period of 35 years, Doctor HILLMAN practised medicine and taught in Kenya, Uganda, Kuwait, Zambia, Tanzania, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Pakistan, the Philippines, India and Guyana.
An unassuming man who loved to sing, Doctor HILLMAN experienced many adventures during his decades abroad, including at least six coups d'état in Africa. The first occurred in 1971 when dictator Idi Amin took over Uganda. Realizing they might have to leave quickly, the HILLMANs began wearing fanny packs called "coup kits" that held their passports and money.
One dark night, Mr. HILLMAN was told it would be a good idea to get out of the country and experienced some tense moments before slipping across an unmarked border crossing to Kenya. "We escaped under a tarp on a logging truck," recalled Liz HILLMAN. "It was fun. We could hear shooting."
On another occasion, Doctor HILLMAN was forced to leave his wife alone in their car, which had broken down on a mountain road, while he walked to find help. "He said he thought he'd seen a church. I heard shooting in the distance. It was a long five-hour wait for him [to return]."
In both cases, the children were away at school or elsewhere in the care of nannies.
Don HILLMAN first studied engineering at McGill University, and late in the Second World War was commissioned as an officer in the Royal Canadian Artillery. He spent the last three months of the war fighting with 7 Medium Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery.
After the war, he switched to medicine and graduated from McGill. In 1956, he completed a pediatric endocrine fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He also took time to get married. Doctor Liz SLOMAN had known Doctor HILLMAN briefly in Montreal three years earlier, when they were both residents at the Montreal Children's Hospital.
Displaying a decidedly unconventional approach, he had challenged her to an arm-wrestling contest. "I said, 'What's arm wrestling?' He showed me. I told him I thought I could beat him and I did!" As it happened, romance did not bloom -- at least, not then. "He had lots of girlfriends," she said. "I babysat for his sister's kid and he asked me out for supper, but nothing else happened."
In November of 1955, they met again in Boston, where she was interning. The hospital wasn't paying her anything and she'd run out of money. "I asked him if I could borrow $60. I was very embarrassed and I didn't like to approach an American. He said that it was a lot of money and that he'd better come over and talk about it. He came over and a month later we went up to Montreal and got married."
By all accounts, the HILLMANs enjoyed a happy and fruitful life together, both on the home front and in medicine. Doctor HILLMAN was the front man of the team, while his wife used her organizational skills.
"He was funny, a terrifically good doctor who never frightened a child in his life. He was very hard working. Mostly, we just looked after kids together all over the world. It was fun working together," she said. Naturally, they had the odd disagreement. "I liked disagreeing with him, but I always did it in private. We worked it out."
After returning to Montreal in 1957, Doctor HILLMAN obtained his doctorate in experimental medicine in clinical investigation and eventually became associate professor of pediatrics, then associate dean of postgraduate studies, at McGill.
In 1976, he relocated to Newfoundland's Memorial University, where he taught pediatrics and headed the Janeway Child Health Centre. In 1985, he returned to Africa with his wife, teaching social pediatrics at Makerere University in Uganda. He also established a child health and development centre. Idi Amin had been deposed six years earlier and his disastrous regime had pretty much destroyed the country's infrastructure. There was much to do, so Doctor HILLMAN rolled up his sleeves and repaired broken incubators, Land Rovers and the like.
In 1989, both HILLMANs went to McMaster University and set up a child-health component within the International Health Centre. They weren't there long, however. There were always more students to teach abroad, and Doctor HILLMAN went to Laos, Vietnam, and China. In 1991, he and his wife taught at a medical school in Malaysia. Believing that prevention is central to child health, they developed a family medicine department.
In all this, Doctor HILLMAN also found time to be a regular father. Jamie HILLMAN remembers a father-and-son sports day at his Cub Scout camp, when his father's sense of humour cheered up a lot of small boys. "Our team was getting pretty upset because we weren't winning anything. I kept dropping my egg, I was crying and we were getting more and more depressed."
Then came Doctor HILLMAN's turn to run across the field, balancing a hard-boiled egg in a spoon. He decided to try and lighten the atmosphere and taped his egg on with one of the Band-aids he always carried in his pocket. He ran across the field, wildly waving the spoon and egg. Of course, he was immediately disqualified, said Jamie HILLMAN, but "he raised our spirits."
Dr. Kate Wotton, a former colleague at Newfoundland's Janeway Hospital, described how Doctor HILLMAN helped her deal with a case of child abuse in Davis Inlet. The community had expected the child's parents to be arrested but instead they continued to be at large. He "heard me out and asked a few pertinent questions. He seemed to appreciate what a miscarriage of justice this would be and how devastating [it would be] in this small community. Then he asked, 'What can I do?' I was so taken aback, I was, for a short minute, speechless. I had been hearing so many versions of, 'It really isn't my problem' that I was totally unprepared for someone who cared."
In 1994, Doctor HILLMAN accepted an appointment as professor of pediatrics, epidemiology and community health at the University of Ottawa. For 10 years, he and his wife worked on projects in Pakistan, Kenya, Guyana, India and the Philippines. They also served as consultants in eight other countries.
In 2005, both HILLMANs were awarded a fellowship by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, allowing them to return to Africa to reassess Canadian university contributions to child health.
Over the years, Doctor HILLMAN received many awards, including the Order of Canada in 1994. Doctor Liz HILLMAN also received the order at the same time.
Donald Arthur HILLMAN was born on June 25, 1925, in Montreal. He died in Ottawa on July 4, 2006, from complications from asthma. He was 81. He leaves his wife Elizabeth, his sons Jamie, Don and Alan, daughters Alison and Elizabeth, and his sister Elizabeth.
On October 15, colleagues paid tribute to Doctor HILLMAN during a medical conference in Ottawa.
