(Updated)A little more than 24 hours after a violent crash killed two people in Halton Hills — and this afternoon, a second crash took place in the same area. It happened at Trafalgar Road and Number Five Sideroad.It’s strange because we were here to investigate that collision which happened last night which tragically took two lives when the second collision happened this afternoon.Let’s take a look at some of the footage we have from that collision. It happened at around 3pm today. A black Kia Rio suffered significant damage to its front end while moving west to east in the intersection. It then collided with a Subaru Forrester which had damage to the right front end.All the fire and EMS crews were here very quickly — they seemed to be almost immediate as it was necessary to close down part of the intersection and direct traffic as crews worked to clear the cars away.This closure lasted a little less than an hour before things were up and running before things were up and running and there were reports of one person being hurt but the severity was not known but it appeared that it was not serious.Let’s take a look at what happened at about 6 o’clock last night. In the fatal collision, a silver Honda Accord or Civic was carrying four people. It is believed that it was turning right to go south on Trafalgar Road when it was struck by a truck. Two people, a man and a woman were pronounced dead at the scene while the driver was airlifted to Sunnybrook Hospital where he is in serious but stable condition. We’ve learned that they are permanent residents in Canada who were originally from India so there was a bit of a language barrier when speaking with them.Collision reconstruction was in the area for the duration of the evening.We spoke to one member of the collision reconstruction team today about whether the intersection itself played a factor in this collision.Constable Kevin Rye, Traffic Services: “The intersection will play a part in the collision. Having said that, the investigation will be focusing mainly on the conduct of the drivers involved in relation to how they perceived and how they reacted to those traffic signals.”So they are saying that it is most likely to be human error. Just to give you an idea of the severity of this collision that happened last night, the truck came through the intersection southbound. It came off the road and took out a light standard. There’s burn marks and plenty of debris on the road. The light standard is still sitting there.The truck continued on into the corn field where it came to a stop. There was a significant fire which crews had to put out. Luckily the driver did manage to get out and was treated in hospital and is expected to be OK.It could be some time before they find out exactly what went wrong.
Parents of tea-time tearaways can breathe a sigh of relief.The fussy eating habits of children are largely the result of genetics rather than poor parenting, scientists have found.Researchers at University College London studied nearly 2,000 families with twins to tease apart the genetic and environmental factors behind mealtime meltdowns.They found that food fussiness – where children are overly selective about food – could be explained half through genetics and half through environment. But where a child refused to try new food – a trait called food neophobia – only 22 per cent was due to the environment.The rest was genetic, suggesting that a parent is battling the genetic make-up of their children each time they attempt to introduce a new food.“Establishing a substantial genetic influence on both of these traits might be quite a relief to parents as they often feel judged or feel guilty for their children’s fussy eating,” said Andrea Smith (UCL Health Behaviour Research Centre), who jointly led the research.“Understanding that these traits are largely innate might help to deflect this blame.” So if identical twins show more similarly on a given trait is provides evidence that genes significantly influence that trait. However if identical and non-identical twins share a trait it is likely environment has more of an influencing role.The researchers said that although food fussiness has a strong genetic basis, it does not mean that the behaviour cannot be changed. “Genes are not our destiny,” said Dr Clare Llewellyn, (UCL Health Behaviour Research Centre) senior lead researcher for the paper.“We know of many traits with a strong genetic basis that can nevertheless be changed, such as weight.“It would be useful for future research to identify the important environmental shapers of food fussiness and neophobia in young children so that they might be targeted to reduce these behaviours.” The research was published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry. Scientists use twins for studies because identical twins share all the same genes while non-identical have an average of 50 per cent shared genetics.

These findings contest the idea that fussy eating is simply the result of ‘bad parenting’.Holly Harris of the UCL Health Behaviour Research Centre and Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia, said: “Having a child who refuses to eat most foods can be very distressing for a parent.“A logical next-step is to work with parents to address their concerns, and develop strategies to best respond to a child’s fussy eating to encourage future food acceptance.”
