Biker killed in crash on 210

first_imgAZUSA – A fatal crash involving a motorcycle and a stalled vehicle on the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway tied up traffic for hours Tuesday as investigators pieced together the incident just west of the Citrus Avenue offramp. William McKernan, 37, of Costa Mesa died instantly when his red 2001 Yamaha motorcycle struck an abandoned Honda in the car-pool lane at 5:24 a.m., CHP spokesman Officer Edmund Zorilla said. Police continued to search for the driver of the Honda, who fled the scene after crashing into the car-pool lane center divider just minutes before the crash. “The driver of the Honda is going to have major head injuries,” Zorilla said. “So we’re doing our follow up.” Officials pronounced McKernan, who was pinned between his motorcycle and the stalled car, dead at the scene. His body was taken to the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner for an autopsy. Zorilla said he did not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in McKernan’s death. Zorilla confirmed McKernan was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The driver of the Honda could face misdemeanor charges of hit-and-run, Zorilla said. More serious charges could result when the follow-up investigation is forwarded to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. The CHP issued a SigAlert following the incident. Traffic on the 210 remained tied up in both directions for several hours. Police believe McKernan was heading home after leaving City of Hope in Duarte. A visitor’s badge for the hospital, issued Monday, remained pinned to his shirt, Zorilla said. frank.girardot@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717last_img read more

Government shoots down AR-15 petition

first_imgThe local MP also believes the outcome of the US Presidential Election this fall could have an impact on the issue going forward. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – It carried more than 25,000 signatures, but the Trudeau government has shot down the AR-15 e-petition launched by Marc Bennett of Corner Brook, Newfoundland, and sponsored by Prince George/Peace River/Northern Rockies MP, Bob Zimmer.This is the petition tabled in the Commons this summer calling on the government to reclassify the rifle as an unrestricted firearm.The petitioners wrote, “This rifle is the most versatile hunting rifle in the world”…adding…“The calibre can easily be changed to meet lawful provincial hunting requirements from small game to big game animals, without the need to purchase multiple gaming rifles .”- Advertisement -However, the Liberal government was having no part of their arguments with Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale saying he has no intention of invoking a section of Canada’s criminal code to reclassify the firearm as unrestricted.While not surprised Mr. Zimmer did find the government response troubling, especially Mr. Goodale’s commitment to put the decision making authority about weapons classification back into the hands of RCMP.However, Canada’s restricted gun ownership increased nine and half percent last year and Mr. Zimmer says the firearms debate is far from over.Advertisementlast_img read more

PRIEST GIVEN 27 PER CENT SHARE OF HOME OF EX-LOVER

first_imgFr RosbothamA GAY Catholic priest has today been awarded 27 per cent of a home he once shared with his lover, former Franciscan friar Hugo Crawford.Rose Cottage, in Letterbarrow, is to be now divided, with Mr Crawford getting a 73 per cent share of any future sale. Judge Keenan Johnson told Donegal Town Circuit Court today that he had calculated ownership of the property based on the amount of money he believed each party had contributed to the property.He found Father Rosbotham, a curate in Ballina, Co Mayo, had made a contribution of €22,500 to the cottage whilst Mr Crawford’s contribution amounted to just over €59,000.The court heard yesterday how Fr Rosbotham and Mr Crawford met in the 1980s when they were both Franciscan brothers.Mr Crawford quit the order and paid IR£25k for the house in 1994.In 2000 and 2002 he had applied to add Fr Rosbotham’s name to the title deeds as by that stage the priest had also left the Franciscans – which has a vow of poverty and a ban on ownership of property – and had become a curate in Ballina.Judge Johnson said before delivering his judgement: “They are both clear very decent men who still have considerable regard for each other. They have dedicated their lives to helping others, Fr Rosbotham as a priest and Mr Crawford as a carer.“I think it is unfortunate that this matter had to be aired in court and it certainly strikes me as a case that was tailor-made for mediation. Had the parties agreed to mediation, the matter could have been dealt with in private, with each of the parties retaining ownership of the ultimate resolution.”PRIEST GIVEN 27 PER CENT SHARE OF HOME OF EX-LOVER was last modified: October 17th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal Town Circuit Courtfather rosbothamgayhouseHugo CrawfordPriestlast_img read more
