A Toronto transit commission worker is dead and a second injured after they were struck by subway train in the city’s north end.

Ambulance officials say the workers were hit by a service train near the Yorkdale station on an elevated portion of the tracks.

Service trains are used to ferry workers and equipment between job sites within the subway network.

As a result of the incident, there will no subway service between the Downsview and St. Clair West stations for Friday’s morning rush hour.

The TTC says shuttle buses will be used to ferry passengers around the area. Overall subway service is likely to be further slowed because of delays getting trains out of the Downsview subway depot.
