pedestrian hit toronto

Toronto is furious after another commuter was hit while exiting a streetcar

A Toronto woman was hit by a dump truck while exiting a streetcar on Bathurst this morning, and many residents are beyond furious that this keeps happening on the city's streets. 

Officers were called to Bathurst and Ulster streets around 8:43 a.m. this morning, and the woman was eventually taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Sadly, this is far from the first time this has happened and it's unlikely to be the last. 

Why? Because drivers and cyclists are known to disobey streetcar rules in Toronto, and nothing ever seems to be done about it. 

City councillor Mike Layton tweeted about the incident earlier today, saying he was already angry about this issue before this morning's collision. 

He called out Toronto Police and the TTC, asking what they'll do to rectify the situation.

But many Toronto residents are confident they already know the answer: they won't do a thing. 

And many are saying that, without intervention, Toronto's streets just keep getting scarier. 


As pedestrians continue to be harmed on the streets of Toronto, many are left wondering what it will take to provoke action.
