Car accidents: 1 critically injured in Toronto

One man is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries following a crash in Toronto's east end, according to news sources. Car accidents involving multiple vehicles are carefully investigated by Ontario authorities. While this case is being handled the same way, the investigation is still in its preliminary stages as of this report. 

Toronto police responded to the crash around 6:30 a.m. the morning of May 6, on Queen Street East near the Don Valley Parkway. It appears one vehicle was travelling at a high rate of speed when it smashed into a second car, causing a tertiary accident in which the struck vehicle in turn struck a taxi. One man, believed to be in his 30s, was found pinned under one of the vehicles. Police are unsure whether he was a pedestrian or if he was thrown from one of the three involved vehicles. 

The man was rushed to a local hospital with critical injuries. Several other people were also taken in for treatment, though those three individuals suffered from minor injuries only. Police are now seeking the support of witnesses to determine the specifics of the crash. 

As with most car accidents, Ontario authorities will continue to investigate this accident until the chain of events is clarified. If appropriate, police may file criminal charges against one or more drivers involved. Provincial law also allows the injured parties to file personal injury lawsuits against the driver or drivers thought responsible, though evidence of negligence would be necessary if damages are to be awarded by a civil court.
