Two people, including a pedestrian, were injured after a car crashed into the TTC’s Long Branch Loop early Saturday, Toronto police say.

Police say a female driver in her 20s and the pedestrian, a man in his 70s, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Toronto paramedics said they received a call about the crash just before 3 a.m. Peel paramedics transported the injured, taking two people to St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto and a third person to a local hospital. Police said the third person, a passenger in the car and also a woman in her 20s, was not injured.

The bus loop, which is at the western end of the 501 Queen streetcar line, is near Lake Shore Boulevard West and Brown’s Line in Etobicoke.

No charges have been laid, and police said they have yet to determine if alcohol was a factor in the incident.

Kadeem Griffiths, spokesperson for the Toronto Transit Commission, said the bus shelter is closed for the investigation and repairs but the bus loop itself is not, and TTC buses and streetcars are still able to access it.

“It looks like a car did crash into the Long Branch bus loop this morning,” Griffith said. “There’s an ongoing police investigation.”
