The vehicle appears to have flipped over after hitting the guardrail and a hydro pole. Police say the pole was broken in half and the car was badly damaged.

Police were unable to locate an occupant at the scene. K9 units were called in to help search for possible occupants in case they were thrown from the vehicle or injured. Police later confirmed the occupants had fled the scene.

Toronto hydro has been called in to repair the pole and eastbound lanes on Ellesmere are closed from Orton Park.
