Tourist follows GPS onto St. Clair streetcar tracks, slams into pole

CityNews | posted Friday, Aug 5th, 2016

An early-morning crash on the streetcar tracks on St. Clair West is to blame on a driver who had his eyes of the road, and on his GPS instead.

A man from out of town was in a rental car en route to the airport and instead of turning onto the street, he followed his GPS right onto the streetcar tracks, slamming into a pole holding up TTC wires.

Police have ruled out impaired driving but will be laying careless driving charges.
