Youth Science Canada is saddened to report that CWSF 2011 alumna, Eleesha Wijeratne from Toronto and her father were killed in a head-on crash on the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) last weekend. A teen was driving the wrong way on the ramp from the QEW to the northbound Highway 427 when his SUV collided head-on with the family's minivan.

Eleesha dreamed of becoming a chemical engineer.

We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to Eleesha's mother, who is recovering in hospital from injuries sustained in the crash, and her older brother, an engineering student at Ryerson University.
