King streetcar gets steamy & gross following "sex act"

A group of passionate riders rode the rocket a little too hard Thursday night, shutting down the King streetcar and thoroughly grossing out dozens of unfortunate witnesses.

According to police, the incident took place around 5:30 p.m. at the height of the evening rush hour. The CBC reports two men and a woman, all of whom appeared to be intoxicated, were engaged in "sexual activity" (though it's not clear what that involved exactly) as the car headed westbound near York St. After being confronted, the amorous bunch disappeared into the night, but not before causing a 20-minute delay.

According to the Toronto Star, cops declined to confirm the threesome and were unable to say if anyone involved was drunk.

TTC spokesman Brad Ross told reporters outside City Hall, where the transit provider was hosting a town hall meeting, that the lovers should "get a room."

No charges were laid, according to 52 Division, but "streetcar named desire" jokes were all the rage on Twitter.
