May 16: Toronto’s Weekly Carnage

About Toronto’s Weekly Carnage:

Toronto’s Weekly Carnage is inspired by NYC’s Streetsblog Weekly Carnage feature.

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.

Hit And Run At AMC Theatre

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.

Vehicle Rams Convenience Store

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
