Anthony and Ruth Ann Simone

Home city: Windsor, ON
Ages: Anthony 60; Ruth 51
Date of crash: January 27, 1996

Making a left turn from a collector’s lane of an expressway onto a major city street, Tony and Ruth’s car was struck at the right rear by a drunk driver going at 160 km per hr. in a stolen vehicle. The impact caused their car to spin out of control, hitting a concrete pillar and bursting into flames. They were both burned to death.
