Police are investigating a collision between two TTC vehicles that injured a maintenance worker overnight in the city’s east end.

The worker suffered serious, non life-threatening injuries to his legs and face after a streetcar rammed a TTC work truck, which then struck the man, police said. The employee was part of a crew doing maintenance work on the Gerrard Street bridge over the Don Valley Parkway.

“Right now, our concern is with the health and safety of our employees that were involved,” said TTC spokesman Kevin Carrington.

Mr. Carrington said the streetcar driver and another transit worker were also taken to St. Michael’s Hospital following the collision, which occurred around 12:40 a.m. Wednesday in the westbound lane of Gerrard St. E. near Broadview Ave. The area was closed to traffic for about four hours.

Sergeant Shane Stevenson said traffic services is investigating the collision and that the streetcar will undergo a mechanical examination. The TTC is also investigating.
