Timothy Lindsay, 33, dies in car accident

TORONTO — Timothy Lindsay, automotive journalist and editor of Canada’s Carguide magazine, was killed Oct. 5 in a single-car accident near Oakville, Ontario.

The 33-year-old Lindsay, editor of the semi-annual publication since 1999, died when the Dodge Viper he was driving spun out during heavy rain and struck a utility pole. A passenger in the car, Carguide employee Omar Cushnie, remains in the hospital with broken legs and a broken pelvis. He is in stable condition and expected to recover.

In addition to his duties at Carguide, Lindsay was instrumental in developing The Steering Column and GlobeMegawheels sections of The Globe and Mail newspaper in Toronto.
