GO train narrowly misses school bus trapped in crossing

A mini school bus became trapped in a GO train crossing. No injuries reported.


A mini school bus narrowly missed being crushed by a GO train early Wednesday morning.

At around 8 a.m., the school bus became trapped under the crossing arm near Erindale GO Station. It stopped just before the tracks.

The bus had six passengers and a driver on board.

The bus connected in some way with the crossing arm or the train, said Metrolinx spokeswoman Anne Marie Aikins.

There was little damage to the bus and no one was injured.

The bus has since been released, but the train and tracks are under inspection.

Trains will encounter significant delays on the Milton line as police investigate the cause of the incident.

I expect charges against the bus driver as you are required BY LAW to stop behind the white line. He should be charged with wreckless endangerment, and failure to stop behind the stop line at a railway crossing...........Dare I say his bus license should be terminated or at least suspended for 1yr. I don't think I'd trust my childrens lives with this driver.
