The SIU and Toronto Police are investigating a car crash at King and Elm that has left one man in hospital and a car destroyed. It also happened to occur across the street from your correspondent.
Police were pursuing a Ford Flex at around 2 this morning. After the crash, the driver fled the scene. The passenger was seriously hurt and is in hospital.
The police were tight-lipped with me, but to my eye, it looks like the pursued were racing up King Street from the Rosemount area. Clearly, they were moving very fast and ran the stop sign at Elm. They missed the bend, jumped the curb, and hit the tree.
Pieces from the car were scattered far: a piece of the headlight is about 15 metres away and across the road.
