Good Samaritan Speaks Of Effort To save Crash Victi


HAMBURG, NY - "The images are still in my head," said Jeff Mang of Kenmore on Friday, regarding the events of a night before when he and others stopped to render aid to the victims of a two vehicle crash on Lakeshore Road in Hamburg.

The crash claimed the life of a 30-year-old town of Evans woman.

Mang and his wife were coming back from celebrating Thanksgiving with his wife's family when they came upon the crash on a snow covered and slippery highway.

They were among the half dozen or so who stopped to try to help.

Mang , a former Village of Kenmore police officer and a member of the Kenmore Volunteer Fire Department, says the car occupied by the deceased woman and two other passengers was so damaged that removing the victims was problematic.

"The doors were smashed in and the only door that could open was the front passenger side," he recalled.

London, Ontario: An Exciting Destination for Hockey Fanatics

London, Ontario: An Exciting Destination for Hockey Fanatics

 

Fans of the National Hockey League — and hockey in general — have an outstanding reason to pay a visit to nearby London, Ontario ... and that would be to experience the London Knights in action! 

The London Knights Hockey Club formed in 1965 as a Junior “A” franchise. They were known then as the London Nationals, an Ontario Hockey Association (OHL) affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs. This relationship ended in 1968 when the National Hockey League ended direct sponsorship of junior teams.
