A woman was rushed to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries after being struck by a streetcar in the city’s Harbourfront neighbourhood on Monday morning.
Police say that the victim was on Queens Quay near York Street when she was clipped by the side of the streetcar as it passed her.
It is not clear what happened in the lead up to the collision.
“At this point in time we are just beginning to start the investigation and that will involve speaking to witnesses who were here at the time and also downloading the video from the TTC streetcar to determine what happened,” Insp. Jim Gotell told CP24 at the scene.
Service on the 510 Spadina and 509 Harbourfront streetcars was suspended between Union Station and Spadina Avenue but resumed at around noon.
