Tragic Week in Traffic

427 North closed after serious car vs. truck accident
It's been a bad week on the roads around the GTA. The last three nights have seen major issues on area highways and last night I went to a fatal accident in Port Credit. A small Fierro sports car was cut in half after hitting a tree in Port Credit.

A man in his 50's was killed and a teenager is in critical condition after being air lifted to Sunnybrook Trauma Center. Sadly, family members were on scene. As members of the media we can sometimes seem insensitive to others. I never forget the families and my thought go out to them.

Last night it was a tractor trailer crash that closed the 401 east bound. Tonight it was two tractor trailers vs car on the 427 north bound that closed the highway. The female driver was seriously injured and rushed to hospital. One truck came to rest in the ditch.

Sleepy Sunday

I thought it was going to be a no hit night but at 3am a call came in for a fire in Markham. This is in the new master planned section of Markham where they mix residential and commercial. The fire was in an apartment above a store. The male resident was burned badly and taken to Sunnybrook for treatment.
