The Toronto Transit Commission says it’s investigating after a video emerged Monday morning of a bus running a red light. After the bus runs the red light, it nearly strikes a woman pedestrian.
The incident occurred at Ionview Road and Eglinton Avenue in Scarborough around 9:15 am, according to the description on the YouTube video. A dashcam showed the bus driving right through a red and swerving just as a pedestrian crossed Ionview Road.
“Clearly, based on the viewing of this video, there was an opportunity for that bus to stop,” TTC spokesman Brad Ross told CityNews.”
“Given that the pedestrian stepped off the curb and the bus had to swerve to avoid that pedestrian, that is concerning and that is why we need to review this.”
