This time of year barefoot in the amazon sounds pretty good.
Makes you wonder how it covered so much ground. Freight trains could have got hm most of the way. I'd love to hear the details. Sounds like a great story.
Never good to be the first to a crash scene.View attachment 79825 From there, the narrative is picked up by Constable Mike Gula, St Catherines OPP detachment. Mike got a call from OPP dispatch about a speeding driver near Burlington. Gula saw the white Pantera and gave pursuit with lights on to pull him over. Gula said, "I was driving over 100 mph but I lost sight of him and never got close. A few miles later I came onto the crash scene."
Tim Horton's car left the road at one point and encountered the soft shoulder, damp from rainfall. The tires sank into the soil with two of them coming off their rims and slicing the treads. The car was unable to steer properly and slid dangerously out of control. The left front tie rod snapped and at one point the right rear wheel broke loose from the control arm and ball joint which was totally destroyed. The car hit a lamp post at speed and hurtled into the concrete wall on the west side of the highway. It barrel rolled several times before coming to a rest upside down on the highway. Tim was ejected from the car about 37 meters and died instantly. One report says he was thrown 60 meters.
