Mississauga Bus Accident – A video has emerged that shows a Mississauga transit bus driving into stopped traffic in an accident that occurred on Thursday morning. The accident resulted in the death of at least one person and injured at least eight others. It took place at approximately 9:35 in the morning on the westbound lanes of Derry Road close to where it intersects with Rexwood Road. CTV News Toronto was able to collect a dashcam video from a different vehicle, which shows a blue MiWay bus on the left lane crashing through the back of an SUV, aggressively pushing it forward into another SUV and a cab, and causing a chain reaction. The footage was received from a different vehicle.
The bus continues to push the vehicles, which then collide with a white SUV and a dump truck that were traveling in the center lane. The bus then makes a sharp turn to the left and skids to a halt on the sidewalk, leaving in its wake a trail of smoke, debris, and vehicles that have been severely damaged. The death of one female has been officially confirmed by the police. The driver of the transport truck, Simranjeet Singh, stated that the bus “just didn’t stop.” “The bus was supposed to be parallel with me,” he said in an interview with CTV News Toronto. According to the authorities, there were a total of eight automobiles involved in the accident.
CP24’s cameras captured footage of the MiWay bus with a shattered windshield. According to the authorities, the driver of the bus continued through a red light just before the collision. A earlier report from the ambulance crew stated that three of the patients were in serious to critical condition, with one patient in critical condition. The remaining six were all sent to separate area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries. While police and detectives are still on the site, cars are being asked to stay away from the area.
The City of Mississauga issued a statement saying that the driver of the bus, who is currently receiving medical treatment at the hospital, will be placed on administrative leave until the inquiry is carried out. “We are heartbroken by the horrible events that have occurred today. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the person who passed away, as well as those who were injured and their families,” the statement stated. MiWay transit, which is operated by the City of Mississauga, is providing full cooperation to the investigation being conducted by the Peel Regional Police.
