About Toronto’s Weekly Carnage:
Toronto’s Weekly Carnage is inspired by NYC’s Streetsblog Weekly Carnage feature. The aim of this series of posts is to bring attention to the death and destruction wrought by automobiles and an auto-centric culture. Pursuing policies promoting walking, cycling and public transit could help reduce the carnage.
The carnage unfolded in the eastbound lanes at Credit Union Drive, east of the Don Valley Parkway. Lanes were closed in both directions from Bermondsey Road to the DVP indefinitely after as many as seven cars reportedly collided just before 9pm.
York Police were called after a van and a pick-up truck collided just before the noon hour at Woodbine and Doane Road. One man was pronounced dead at the scene while a male in his 60’s was rushed to hospital with what are said to be very serious injuries.
A pick-up truck driver struck a young man in the the AMC parking lot near Highways 400 and 7, then fled the scene. It happened at about 2:35am.
The unlicensed driver took a major spill near Bathurst and Fort York. He was sent to hospital with a serious case of road rash and a broken wrist.
The front of a convenience store near Sentinel and Finch suffered heavy damage early Monday after a driver apparently rammed it with their car. It appears a suspect tried to break in and possibly rob the place, but so far it’s unclear if anything was lift
