Woman killed in taxi crash

A woman in her 40's is dead and a taxi driver was seriously hurt after he reportedly lost control and slammed into several vehicles.

Emergency crews were called just after 5 p.m. Thursday, for a crash near Avenue Road and Lawrence Avenue.

It's still not clear what lead the driver to lose control and police said Friday morning, it was still to early to determine possible charges.

City Taxi has confirmed that the driver is one of theirs.

Spokesperson Paul Sekhon told NEWSTALK 1010 sister-station CP24, "He’s not really talking much like he’s still in a big state of shock."
