As if the TTC wasn’t already having a bad week, the Toronto Star is reporting 10 people were injured this morning in a subway accident:

The Dupont subway station was evacuated and ten people were treated for smoke inhalation this morning after a mechanical problem aboard a subway car. At about 9:30 a.m., passengers aboard the train approaching the station on the University-Spadina line reported hearing a loud popping sound, or a minor explosion. A metal plate under the subway car had become dislodged, hitting the third-rail power, causing a spark and small blast. The subway car and station became filled with smoke. Passengers had to evacuate the subway car.
