Toronto Star - One passenger is dead and 13 others injured after the TTC bus they were travelling on collided with a construction truck near the Don Valley Parkway Tuesday.

 

A 43-year-old woman from Toronto was killed in the crash, which took place around 2:30 p.m. Six passengers went to trauma for serious injuries, police said. Another three were taken to hospital in ambulances and the rest had more minor injuries.

 

The male bus driver was uninjured, said Danny Nicholson, supervisor of corporate communications for the TTC. It was not immediately known how many people were on board the 54 Lawrence East bus, he said.

 

The TTC is cooperating with the investigation, which is being handled by Toronto police.

 

The front right corner of the bus was smashed after the crash and debris spread across part of Lawrence Ave. E.

 

The truck was in second closest lane to the curb travelling westbound before the exit lane, said Const. Hugh Smith. It appears the bus was changing lanes from the same lane as the truck into the second lane from the center.

Probably not given its age and damage.

 

 

I wish the family and the injured a quick recovery.

 

R.I.P... another blow to the TTC... such a bad year for them.

its a shame this happened, TTC has had a horrible year and this just puts more damage, i wonder whos fault this is. from the looks of it it could be either way either the truck turned lanes and the back hit the bus or the bus was turning and hit the back...

 

 

i wonder how a Orion V would of stood against it, most likely less damage and probably a life saved, but im not nocking the VII just the V being a high floor would of increased the chances
