A 29-year-old motorist who died in an overnight collision had disagreed with her boyfriend over whether to take a cab home from a bar, police said.
He decided to call a taxi, but she wanted to drive.
Around 1:20 a.m., as she headed west on Wilson Ave., the woman slammed her silver Volkswagen into the back of a parked TTC bus.
The bus was empty and had broken down. The driver had parked in the curb lane, turned on the hazard lights and left to get help.
The victim's boyfriend was one of the first people to come across the scene. At first, he though the woman was not badly injured, as her only injuries appeared to be a few cuts and bruises.
What he couldn't see, however, was that she had suffered severe internal injuries. By the time paramedics arrived, she had no vital signs.
"The organs can only take so much — it doesn't take much to rupture your arteries," said Toronto Police Const. Hugh Smith. "She never made it to the hospital."
Police are waiting on a toxicology report to determine if alcohol may have been a factor in the collision.
The woman wasn't wearing a seatbelt.
Her name has not been released, as police are still notifying her family.
