Car Gets Airborne And Crashes Hard

A man is in hospital in serious condition after his car flew through the air and crashed into a North York auto repair shop in an incident captured on surveillance cameras.

Toronto EMS responded to a call around 11:30 a.m. after a black Subaru crashed into a building in the Leslie Street and Coldwater Road area, just north of York Mills Road.

There is no word on exactly why the vehicle lost control and crashed into the building but police are working with the theory that the driver was pressing the accelerator instead of the brake.

After the crash, stunned bystanders nearby came over to assist the driver. He was extricated from the vehicle by Toronto Fire when they arrived on scene.
