Driver dead after crashing into home in Toronto’s east end

A driver crashed a truck into a garage at the intersection of Queen Street East and Kingswood Road Sunday evening, said Toronto police.

According to a 9:30 p.m. press conference, a driver of a truck struck the garage between 2469 and 2467 Queen Street East.

Representatives from Enbridge Gas were at the site of the crash due to a suspected gas leak, which police have indicated posed little cause for concern.

The truck hit the outdoor carport at high speed, which “damaged it to the point of collapse,” according to Toronto fire chief Brian McAlinden.

Police said the driver succumbed to his injuries as a result of the collision.

Circumstances surrounding the crash remain unknown at this time.

Earlier Sunday, police said they responded to calls about a single-vehicle rollover near Woodbine Avenue and Queen Street East just before 4 p.m.

The scene was cleared at about 6 p.m., police said. They added the status of the driver is unknown.
