gardiner crash toronto

Someone just drove their car off the Gardiner and survived

Police are calling one man the "luckiest guy alive." That's because after he was ejected from his car when it veered off the Gardiner Expressway, he walked away with only minor injuries.

According to CBC News, the driver was sideswiped by a transport truck before 7 a.m. while on the Gardiner between Strachan and Jameson avenues.

His car was pushed over the guardrail and it landed upside down. The man was ejected from his car, but police say he fell into a pile of dirt, which probably saved his life.

As the CBC writes, the truck didn't remain at the scene and police are looking at this as "a fail-to-remain crash."
