Friends ID pair killed in Mississauga crash

MISSISSAUGA – 

MISSISSAUGA — Two young adults killed in a fatal motorcycle crash were friends who both shared a love of motorbikes, friends said Friday.

Flowers were placed at the crash site where friends and family mourned the loss of the man and woman who died Thursday night.

Peel Regional Police were called to Burnhamthorpe Rd. and Westminster Pl. around 8:15 p.m. after a car and motorcycle collided.

The driver of the motorcycle — identified by friends as 24-year-old Mike Henry-Wright, the oldest of three siblings — was pronounced dead at the scene.

Cassandra Tanovich, 22, also identified by friends, was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Henry-Wright “cared about everyone he ever met,” Kevin Persaud said at the scene Friday. “We will miss him dearly.”

Persaud and Henry-Wright had gone to school together since Grade 5.

“He’s a real good guy, very talkative and everyone liked him,” said Persaud, who recalled how Henry-Wright would wake him up for school. “This is just so sad. This shouldn’t have happened.”

A friend recalled that just hours before the crash, Henry-Wright had posted on his Instagram account a message about how everyone continued to tell him that motorcycles were dangerous.

“This is so tragic and surreal,” said 21-year-old Amantha Fedick, who was friends with both of them and recalled Tanovich’s love for dogs. “They both rode motorcycles, Cassie was very down to earth and really fun.”

The exact cause of death had not yet been determined, police said. But they believe the motorcycle’s speed was a major factor.

Friends had taken to both Tanovich and Henry-Wright’s Instagram accounts to leave their messages of mourning and loss.

“I will forever miss and love you,” one friend wrote for Henry-Wright, and in another message: “I love you both, I just saw you guys the other day.”

The driver of the car was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and was released Friday.

Police could not say if any charges will be laid. The major collision bureau is continuing to examine evidence from the scene and interview witnesses.

“Drivers who were near the scene have started to come forward but we are urging any with information to contact police or Crime Stoppers,” Const. Lilly Fitzpatrick said. “This is devastating for the families and devastating for the community.”

Anyone with information should call police at 905-453-2121, ext. 3710 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
