Three people are injured, two in critical condition, after a car crashed into a bus shelter at Long Branch Loop early Saturday, Peel paramedics say.
Peel paramedics said they took two people in critical condition to St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, while they took a third person to a local hospital in stable condition.
Jeff Walsh, superintendent at Peel Regional Paramedic Services, said one of the people in critical condition was a pedestrian at the bus shelter. The two other injured people were occupants of the car.
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.
Toronto paramedics said they received a call about the crash just before 3 a.m. but Peel paramedics transported the patients.
Kadeem Griffiths, spokesperson for the Toronto Transit Commission, said the bus shelter that was hit in the accident is closed for the police investigation and repairs but the bus loop itself is not. TTC buses and streetcars are still able to access it, he said.
“It looks like a car did crash into the Long Branch bus loop this morning,” Griffith said. “There’s an ongoing police investigation.”
