In Scarborough, at around 12:30 a.m., an armoured truck heading southbound on Kennedy Rd. was struck by a pickup heading eastbound on Ellesmere Rd.
"As a result of the impact the vehicle flipped over," said Sgt. Gary McBratney of Traffic Services. "It was not a low speed impact."
The passenger of the truck, a 24-year-old woman, was rushed to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre with life-threatening injuries. The driver, a 34-year-old man, was also taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The two people in the pickup truck were not injured.
McBratney said alcohol is not being considered a factor, but are looking at the possibility of someone running a red light.
"Someone entered the intersection when they shouldn't have," he said.
The intersection was closed for police investigation for several hours. It reopened around 10 a.m. "We will determine if charges are warranted," said McBratney.
