A head-on crash near Lucan between a pickup truck and a cement truck early yesterday killed a London man when the pickup exploded in flames.
The crash followed a deadly long weekend on Southwestern Ontario roads, with three people killed and another left fighting for life in hospital.
witnesses: to yesterday's crash along Highway 4, and its aftermath, painted a picture of sudden horror.
"There was lots of fire," said Londoner Gavin DOUCHERTY, who passed by the scene moments after the crash.
"There were (vehicle) parts everywhere along the road. They were trying to put the fire out with small extinguishers," he said.
An unidentified driver of a second pickup truck said he was following the cement truck shortly before 11 a.m.
"There was a huge burst of dust and a loud bang. I saw a pickup sliding across the road and then the cement truck rolled to a stop ahead of me," said the unidentified man.
The victim -- a man in his 20s, whom police hadn't publicly identified died instantly, Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said. [The victim was subsequently identified as Ivan STIMAC.]
The cement truck driver, John DICKSON/DIXON, 42, wasn't hurt.
The crash occurred about eight kilometres north of Lucan and Mooresville Drive.
The northbound pickup crossed the centre line and collided with the southbound cement truck, Ontario Provincial Police said.
The impact appeared to have happened unexpectedly at full speed, with no tell-tale skid marks suggesting braking by either truck.
A kilometre-long stretch of highway was closed for hours as police investigated and road workers cleaned up.
The unidentified man from the second pickup said he went to check on the cement truck driver after the crash.
"I could tell (the pickup driver) was gone, so I went over to the cement truck and helped (the driver) get his door open and helped him from the cab. He was okay."
About 100 metres of highway was littered with debris from both trucks, a large tire from the cement truck thrown into a field 20 metres away.
The pickup, almost unrecognizable, was charred and torn, and the road badly scarred.
The Lucan-Biddulph fire department put out the blaze.
Meanwhile, a 30-year-old Bayham Township man was fighting for his life in hospital yesterday after the pickup he had been driving went out of control and rolled before hitting a tree Monday night.
The name of the victim, thrown from the pickup, wasn't released.
Elgin Ontario Provincial Police said the crash occurred about 11: 40 p.m. near the intersection of Talbot Line (Hwy. 3) and Hacienda Road in Malahide Township.
Police said it appeared the truck hit two road signs before rolling and hitting the tree.
Malahide Fire Department and Elgin-Saint Thomas Emergency Medical Services raced to the scene and found the driver, suffering "severe" trauma.
Taken to Saint Thomas airport, he was flown to London Health Sciences Centre where he was in critical condition.
Earlier Monday, a Sarnia man was killed after he lost control of his car and was ejected from the vehicle.
Phillip KREMER, 30, of Sarnia, was driving north on Brigden Side Road near Confederation Line about 6 p.m. when his car went into one ditch, crossed the road and ended up in another ditch. Kremer was pronounced dead at the scene.
Huron Ontario Provincial Police said a 19-year-old woman was killed at 3: 30 p.m. Monday when her car rolled on Goshen Line in South Huron.
Jolene UNWIN, of South Huron, was thrown from the car and killed.
In another crash, Friday at 6 p.m., an 81-year-old man died from a medical condition after a two-car crash on Goderich Street in West Huron.
Deborah DILLON of Huron East is charged with failing to yield from a private driveway.

KREVER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-08-15 published
BLACK, Kenneth James
Died on August 11, 2007 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto from complications following pneumonia. Loving husband of Mary, who predeceased him in 1976, a devoted father to Amy and grandfather to Theo BROOKE, born August 2006; he was adored by Amy, Theo and son-in-law Stephen BROOKE. His sister-in-law Marjorie BLACK, nieces and nephew Cathy, Diane and Norm BLACK, great-nephew Gregory BLACK and great-niece Jacqueline BLACK, cousins Michel JONES, Stephen and Stuart THURSBY, Wendy and Bill KREVER, and Natalie COYLE were all dear members of his family in Ontario. He will be greatly missed by all his family from Winnipeg: brother-in-law Alfred KAYE, nephews and nieces John, Kathie, Gordon and Jeanne KAYE; great-nieces and great-nephews Liz, Cameron, Donna, Michael, and Michele KAYE, Michael PURVES- SMITH and Robert POHL. Ken was also a dear and caring uncle to niece Nicola IVANOVIC, nephews David and Neil CHAPMAN, great-nieces Natasha and Isabella IVANOVIC and Jessica CHAPMAN, all of Merseyside, England; he was a cherished brother-in-law to Rosemarie CHAPMAN and Dennis CHAPMAN, also of Merseyside. He was predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth, and brothers Ralph and Arthur, and by his nieces Jacqueline BLACK and Margaret KAYE. Ken's strong sense of loyalty and fun animated a wide circle of Friends in Canada and in England over his entire life.
Ken was born in Winnipeg on May 10, 1924, the youngest of Norman and Margaret BLACK's four children. He attended the University of Manitoba and served in the Royal Canadian Navy in corvettes during the Second World War. After the war, he became a journalist, first working at the Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Tribune then spending time in Europe and England for Reuters. In 2006, he published a memoir of his adventures during and after the war entitled Telling It Like It Was. He joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1957 where he worked, in both radio and television, for over 35 years, in London, England, Saint John's, Newfoundland and Toronto. After his retirement he dedicated himself to his many interests, including travelling, writing, neighbourhood activism, birdwatching and his legendary annual Victoria Day Party.
Ken brought an unrivalled joy to life and touched everyone he met with this enthusiasm and with his charm and humour. He was a true gentleman, but with a wry and sometimes mischievous outlook. Ken had the gift of treating everyone with the same gracious manner. As the countless guests to his house will attest, he was the soul of hospitality. He was as happy playing with children as entertaining adults and will be remembered by a number of generations as the delightful and engaged grown-up always ready with wind-up toys, kites, stories and songs. His interests were eclectic, but they were bound together by an unceasing curiosity and energy. Ken was the cherished heart of a number of social worlds and families. He will be sorely missed. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August, 17, 2007 at 3: 00 p.m. at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity Street (one block east of Parliament, just south of King Street East, Toronto). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ken's memory to the Bruce Trail Association.
