Young mom killed in 401 crash
By Canadian Press, Sat., September 1, 2007
Kitchener -- A young Brampton mother was fatally injured on Highway 401 in Cambridge yesterday morning, moments after moving her three-year-old daughter to safety.
A car was struck by a transport-truck while driving the eastbound lanes around 4: 45 a.m., police said. The crash spun the car sideways into oncoming traffic, police said.
Jackie AVELAR was able to pull her three-year-old daughter, Orbela, to safety on the shoulder of the road. She returned to the car, which was then struck from behind by a second transport truck, pushing the car into the centre median, said Const. Dave WOODFORD.
AVELAR was rushed to Cambridge Memorial Hospital, where she died.
The driver of the first truck fled the scene. Police later arrested him on the 401 outside of Kingston.

Mother's actions saved child from certain death, police say
By Unnati GANDHI with a report from Tim SHUFELT, Page A14
Simply put, Jackie DO VALE- AVELAR lived for her daughter.
From play dates to cooking, drawing to shopping, the 25-year-old mother's every breath was for her three-year-old baby girl, Orbela.
That included her last.
As Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR drove home early yesterday morning to her waiting husband in Brampton, her Dodge SX collided with a tractor-trailer. Police say the truck driver fled the scene, and Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR's badly damaged car came to a stop across two lanes of the eastbound 401 near Cambridge.
Police later found the semi near Napanee, and arrested the driver for failing to remain at the scene of an accident.
Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR grabbed Orbela and put her in the ditch beside the highway's shoulder. But she returned to her totalled car, probably for her cellphone, police say.
As she tried to get in through the driver's door at about 4: 45 a.m. with her back to oncoming traffic, another rig plowed into her. She was pinned.
Ontario Provincial Police Constable David WOODFORD said she likely died on impact.
He said Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR did the right thing by immediately getting her daughter to safety, preventing what could have been an even greater tragedy.
"She got her child out. She saved her child's life, because the child would have been killed," he said.
To her closest Friends, the act of bravery sounded every bit like Jackie.
Candice SHERRETT, who said her Friendship with Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR dates back to elementary school, remembers the day Orbela was born.
"Jackie's life had been fulfilled," she told The Globe and Mail. "… I think some comfort can be taken knowing that Jackie died knowing her daughter was safe and out of harm's way."
Yesterday, Orbela was told, "Mommy has gone to heaven," she said.
Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR's husband, parents, and younger sister, Ligia, were too distraught to comment yesterday.
Jackie DO VALE married her high school sweetheart six years ago after graduating from Saint_Joseph's College School in downtown Toronto. The couple moved to Brampton and their daughter was born three years later.
Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR worked two jobs so Orbela could have whatever she wanted, said one of her best Friends, Alex POLICARPO, 25. During the week, she was a secretary at a local car dealership. On weekends, she worked at a laundromat.
"She liked to do everything in life. She was always the first to try things out," Ms. POLICARPO said.
When Ms. POLICARPO had her baby shower in July, Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR was the first to give her advice. "She told me to tell my husband to do all the work. I was supposed to just sit back and relax," Ms. POLICARPO said.
The Ontario Provincial Police also investigated another serious collision yesterday, in which a 70-year-old woman visiting from Trinidad was killed and three others were injured.
The four were travelling in the Niagara-bound lanes of the Queen Elizabeth Way near St. Catharines with a house trailer in tow just after 7 a.m. As their truck approached a construction zone, it suddenly veered off into a grassy shoulder at highway speed and struck a tree, Constable WOODFORD said.
The Ontario Provincial Police says 295 people have been killed in traffic accidents in the province so far this year, up from 280 in the same period in 2006.
