Canada: Muslim who killed 1, injured 6 in road rage incident released on bail

Source: Man released on $52K bail for QEW chain reaction crash that killed 22-year-old woman – Toronto – CBC News h/t beaches

A 32-year-old man charged in connection with “an absolutely horrific crash” in Mississauga, which killed a 22-year-old woman, was released on $52,000 bail Thursday afternoon.

Yasir Baig of Mississauga turned himself in to police late Wednesday evening. He faces four charges:

  • Dangerous driving causing death.
  • Dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
  • Failure to remain at the scene of a collision causing death.
  • Failure to remain at the scene of a collision causing bodily harm.

​The Jan. 27 crash on the QEW east of Cawthra Road claimed the life of Nicole Turcotte and left a 19-year-old woman in critical condition. Five others were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Turcotte’s cousin Brandy Sommer Wood said she was “so angry” after Thursday’s bail hearing.

“I know that’s part of grieving,” she said. “I wanted [Baig] to look at me just for a moment.”

Sommer Wood said hearing Turcotte’s name in court made it “that much more real.”

“I just can’t imagine how this is going to get any better,” Sommer Wood said. “He’s getting to go home.”

In the days following the collision, police said six vehicles were involved and that it appeared to have been caused by an incident of road rage on the part of one of the drivers.

Nicole Turcotte, 22, of Niagara Falls, died in the multi-vehicle crash on the QEW just east of Cawthra Road, Saturday night, Jan. 27. A 19-year-old woman who was a passenger in Turcotte’s car, remains in hospital in critical condition.

Five other people sustained minor injuries.

Police are saying the road rage incident didn’t even involve any of the multiple victims.

Schmidt said the suspect car was reportedly in the middle lanes of traffic when it moved into the left lane in front of the first of the five victim vehicles just after 10 p.m. The driver then “brake checked” the lead driver, he said, forcing them to slow down, causing the chain-reaction collision.

That sudden slowdown caused the multi-vehicle collision, and four vehicles back, a pickup truck hit a car carrying Turcotte.

“As a result of those actions, we now have this tragedy that was 100 per cent preventable,” Schmidt said. “It should not have happened.”

  1. Please keep up your important journalism. We are under a insidious attacks. The EU would have us sacrifice European women for this nonsense. They need to be resettled in Muslim countries.

  2. Muslims mix with the rest of the world like oil mixes with water! Time to send them all home, back to their sharia sand box!

  3. This guy needs his Drivers license Pulled for life. Doing what he did, he should also go to jail for no less than 30 years. An Idiot with a Drivers License and a car. I do hope his insurance or the car that rear ended it, pay for damages to his vehicle. He did this on Purpose, this was no accident, and I hope he got broken back from the impact.

    Islam is a Cancer, as thus it must be Eradicated, World Wide ASAP!
    Islam is NOT a religion, maybe a cult at most, but more of a Political system then a Religion
    Since the start of islam, 270 million People have been killed by muslims world wide, it is not a religion of peace.
    To back up my facts watch this video and see for yourself –

  4. This guy, Baig, cut into the left hand lane which probably pissed the lead driver off. He then braked checked the lead driver — which is totally illegal, by the way — probably because that driver failed to slow down to allow for this idiot’s last minute ill planned maneuver. This caused the lead driver to brake hard as he/she failed to realize that there wasn’t enough room; but that’s not what caused the pile up. The pile up was caused by every driver behind did the exact same thing: not leaving enough room between them and the car ahead. Bumper to bumper traffic at high speeds is the root cause here. You’d have to pull every drivers license for this because everyone involved is guilty of it.
    This scenario is all stipulation; I wasn’t there. But I’ve witnessed too many similar situations where an accident was imminent and was avoided by chance. It’s awful that someone died. I feel for the family. This guy might’ve had a good lawyer and got bail. That’s the way that works. For EVERYBODY.
    There’s plenty of reasons for this tragedy and none of them are because this guy’s a Muslim. But that’s what this page is for so….

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
