A man was in a particular hurry to get his children to school in Toronto Monday morning. Instead of waiting at a traffic light, he decided to take a short cut through a parking lot. He didn’t see the yellow metal poles planted to protect a sidewalk exit ramp. So this happened. Constable Lilly Fitzpatrick said he must have been going too fast.
“He actually bent the first concrete pole and then the vehicle got hung up on the second one,” she said.
No one was injured but the vehicle’s undercarriage was significantly damaged.
“We had to have a special tow truck that was able to lift it up from the pole and get it down,” the constable said.
