my brother said he saw on the news that a T train hit a car at a grade crossing in Abington??? he's not sure. But it was last night. Does anyone have any news or know what happened?

It was a motorist (female) who was drunk driving and hit the signal post.

Train Service was disrupted for an hour before the Kingston-bound Train was allowed to continue on its way.

Noone else was hurt though.
