2 TTC Streetcars Collide

There are lots of collisions every day on the streets of Toronto. But you don't see two streetcars collide too often. According to CityNews, four people are in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and an investigation into the cause of the accident is ongoing, with results expected very soon.

The streetcars were travelling north and south along Spadina Avenue and collided around 3 p.m. at the intersection at Dundas Street in the heart of Chinatown. It appears the northbound streetcar came off the track and smashed into the southbound streetcar.

Speculation is faulty switching equipment is to blame. Plenty of insurance claims and law suits to follow.
