A TTC bus driver has been charged with careless driving in connection with a weekend bus-streetcar crash in the city’s east end.
The Saturday morning crash derailed the streetcar, which paramedics said had 15 to 20 people on board. The bus driver’s name has not yet been released by police.
The bus driver was one of four people sent to hospital after being hurt in the collision, which closed the Main Street and Danforth Avenue area to traffic.
The crash came after a TTC announcement last week that it was reviewing safety procedures, and accelerating a review of its operator training program, after the death of a 14-year-old girl who was hit by a TTC bus.
The TTC said that the bus driver’s case is in the hands of the police now.
“Overall safety is a huge priority for us and when you look at the number of trips taken each year, it is still a safe way to go,” TTC spokeswoman Susan Sperling said. “There have been some unfortunate incidents and we are reviewing some of our practices.”
