One person is dead after a collision between a TTC bus and a car that sent the bus crashing into a building in north Etobicoke early Sunday morning.

Police received a call at around 6 a.m. about a collision between a Nissan and a TTC bus at Kipling Avenue and Westhumber Boulevard.

After the crash, the 96 Wilson bus left the road, struck a light pole and crashed into a CIBC bank, Toronto Police Const. Clint Stibbe said.

One occupant of the Nissan was pronounced dead at the scene and two other occupants were rushed to Sunnybrook Hospital in critical condition, he said. Six bus passengers and the driver of the bus were taken to hospital, but none appeared to be in life-threatening condition.

Chirag Patel, who witnessed the crash from a nearby donut shop, said he heard shouting before the bus hit the bank. “It was very scary, ” Patel said.

A gold sedan was also damaged in the crash, but it appeared to have been parked there without anyone in it.

Investigation underway

TTC CEO Andy Byford said Sunday that his thoughts are with the families of the person who was killed and those who were injured.

“I can only imagine how terrifying this must have been for customers on the bus and everyone else involved,” he said. “We need to get to the bottom of this.”

Investigators are reviewing images taken from the camera on the bus, as well as GPS data and security footage from local businesses as they piece together what happened, Stibbe said.

Police are also asking witnesses to contact them.

Kipling Avenue was closed following the crash, but reopened in both directions by the afternoon.

Second bus crash

Meanwhile, another TTC bus was involved in a minor collision on Sunday morning.

It happened near Nightstar Road and Morningside Drive in Scarborough shortly after 11 a.m., according to Toronto Paramedic Services .

Three cars were involved in that crash, said Const. Stibbe, adding there were only minor injuries.
