1 pedestrian killed, 3 others injured after driver loses control at uptown intersection
CBC News Posted: Jun 12, 2015
Toronto police say a 62-year-old woman was behind the wheel of a car that careened into several pedestrians, killing one, on Thursday near the intersection of Yonge Street and Empress Avenue.
No charges have been laid at this time, but police say the investigation into the horrific crash is ongoing and they are looking for witnesses.
Police said the woman was eastbound on Park Home Avenue, which turns into Empress Avenue east of Yonge Street, when she side-swiped a silver SUV and continued into the intersection.
Police said the woman's car, a grey Toyota Camry, then struck four pedestrians on the east side of Yonge Street before mounting a curb and hitting a concrete embankment, tree and then a parked SUV.
One witness told CBC News that the woman's car appeared to accelerate as it moved northeast through the intersection, though police haven't released details.
The female driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash and was taken to hospital.
Video also emerged Friday of witnesses frantically performing CPR on one of the pedestrians who had been struck. Another injured man lay on the concrete nearby.
Police haven't released the name of the pedestrian who was killed.
The pedestrian's death is Toronto's 29th traffic fatality of 2015.
