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.
Collision: Avenue Rd. & St. Clair Ave. a single veh. into a pole. Possible delays. #1374724 @TPS53Div ^GL
