TTC driver faces careless driving charge in fatal crash

A TTC bus driver faces charges, including careless driving, in connection with a fatal crash that killed a 65-year-old woman earlier this month.

The woman was hit by a bus on Oct. 11 while crossing Lawrence Avenue West at Allen Road.

The 34-year-old man also faces charges of failing to yield to a pedestrian at a crosswalk and not making a safe turn.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 20 at Old City Hall.

He is the second GTA bus driver to be charged in a fatal crash this month. Last week, a York Region transit bus driver was charged in a September crash that killed a 75-year-old woman in Richmond Hill.
