Wind sends construction fence crashing into cargo van

Fence on cargo van

It was a windy night in the GTA and it nearly cost a delivery driver his life.

He was driving through Eglinton and Don Mills earlier Friday morning when a construction fence came crashing down, blown over by the wind.

A steel beam smashed through the van's windshield.

The driver was trapped for a short time but is expected to recover.

The fence was part of the Crosstown LRT construction.
