A serious crash at College and Bay streets has left one woman with life-threatening injuries and sent three others, including a child, to hospital.
Toronto paramedics say three of the people taken to hospital are pedestrians. Pictures from the scene show several people attending to someone on the ground shortly after the crash, which happened around 3:20 p.m.
Nearby, there are three damaged vehicles.

Sgt. Brett Moore with Traffic Services said in a Twitter video that it appears one driver “violated a light,” setting off the chain of collisions. All of the drivers remained at the scene, he said.
Police have shut the intersection down and TTC service is being diverted. Authorities are urging people to avoid the area throughout rush hour.
Investigators are looking for witnesses, although Moore said the incident was likely captured on video. “There are cameras everywhere at the intersection,” he said.
