Jackie, Andrew, Duncan and Jordan McLeod
Home city: North Bay, Ontario
Ages: 33, 36, 7, 3
Date of crash: March 21, 1998
March 21, 1998, we spent the day at Science North in Sudbury, then visited with family. At 8:00 PM we decided to go home to North Bay. At 8:45 my husband noticed a car zig-zagging all over the road. He pointed it out to me, barely finishing his sentence before we were hit. It happened so fast.
It was a 15 year old who was driving, and he had been drinking. He wanted to have fun but his actions have deeply affected our lives. We are healing physically but emotionally it is a bit more difficult. I had a broken bone in the foot, a broken sternum and severe stomach bruising. Andrew had a broken right knee and severe stomach bruising. Duncan had a ruptured bowel and bruising. Jordan had a bleeding nose. I am grateful to be alive and thankful to the many people who have given us support.
