Car slams into house & hits hydro pole in Etobicoke, power out

A Porsche slammed into a house in the Browns Line and Lake Shore Boulevard area in Etobicoke on Monday morning.

The car also nicked a hydro pole, blowing a transformer and knocking out power in the area.

Ironically, the house on Burlingame Road that was hit is not fed by that transformer. It is one of the few houses in the neighbourhood with power.

The driver fled the scene but was caught by police a few blocks away.

He was sent to the hospital with minor injuries. He was arrested and charges are pending on a breathalyzer test.
