The accident, which damaged three vehicles, left the active public road blocked from 10 p.m. on Tuesday to almost 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning. Toronto Police asserts that a 38 year-old truck driver was under influence.
Toronto police Sgt. Glen George says there’s no excuse for this crash and the carnage it caused.
Sgt. George said: “Operators of these type of vehicles, a commercial vehicle of any type, are professionals, and you should act with a professional manner when you’re driving that vehicle, and that includes making sure you’re not impaired by any type of, whether it’s alcohol, drugs or even being tired behind the wheel.”
Reportedly, the tractor-trailer dived across the highway just after 10 p.m. on Tuesday. The truck was hit by a minivan while another car then banged into both vehicles. The driver and a passenger in the truck were immediately sent to hospital with slight injuries. Two other people also suffered minor injuries.
