Scary stuff from the streets this morning. I’ll post more details as I know them.
Was it a hit-and-run? An attempted robbery? Police are still trying to iron out the details of a bizarre incident early Friday morning. A cyclist was taken to hospital after his leg was reportedly severed in a collision with a cab near the intersection of Dovercourt Rd. and Dundas St. It’s believed the cab backed into the man, hit a pole, and took off at about 2:30am.
Toronto police are trying to figure out how a taxi nearly severed a cyclist’s leg early Friday morning. The incident happened at around 2:30 a.m. at the corner of Dovercourt Road and Argyle Street. Witnesses told police they heard shouting, followed by the sound of a crash. Then they saw a Beck’s taxi leaving the scene and a cyclist lying at the side of the road in obvious pain. A few hours later, a taxi driver contacted police and said he had been assaulted just before the incident.
