A day later, and what sounded, at first (at least to us), like a freakish, horrible, Toronto-shattering disaster––two 23-tonne streetcars colliding just before rush hour––has revealed itself to be a little less than disastrous. When The Sun can get away with calling two cars in an accident “bumper cars,” things are probably pretty okay: according to CityNews, four people are in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and an investigation into the cause of the accident is ongoing, with results expected very soon.
Early this morning, JL1967 added two photos of the aftermath to our Flickr pool (the first photo is above; here’s the second). A weird accident, to be sure––and we really hope that those four people are doing alright––but nothing to freak out about. We’ll try to keep our sensationalism to a minimum.
