Ontario car accidents: 1 injured in North York

A person in North York has suffered injuries following a two-car crash the morning of March 11. Ontario police tasked with investigating car accidents are still trying to determine the cause of this crash, which sent an unidentified driver to a local hospital. So far, police have not filed charges against the other driver involved. 

The details of the accident are still unclear at this time, but it has been confirmed that two vehicles were involved. It appears one vehicle T-boned another with enough force for the first car to become lodged underneath the second. Firefighters arriving on the scene feared for the safety of the occupant of the second vehicle, as the car was tilted precariously and threatened to land on its roof. 

Emergency crews were eventually successful in extricating the individual from that vehicle. That person was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening. The status of the other driver involved in the crash is unknown at this time. Reportedly, police have not ruled out recklessness, negligence or even intoxication as possible causes of the crash, though the investigation appears ongoing.  

Car accidents causing injury are always investigated to determine exactly what happened. In this case, police may focus on whether the driver of the first car was responsible for the accident; if so, that individual could face criminal charges. Separately, the injured party from the other vehicle may be entitled to file a personal injury suit in an Ontario civil court, should sufficient evidence exist of the other driver's culpability.
