Two 13-year-olds went on what appears to be a joyride at Finch Avenue West and Dufferin Street in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The teens hopped into an SUV and drove down the streets of Toronto when they ended up crashing into a propane tanker truck and then into a GO bus. The crash left the SUV totaled and left one of the teens with serious leg injuries. The GO bus crash happened just before 5 a.m. this morning.

There were no passengers aboard the GO bus when it was struck, 680 News reports. Emergency crews were sent to the North York intersection at 4:45 a.m., according to Global News. The teen who was in the passenger seat is in a trauma centre and may lose his leg and the teen who was driving is now in police custody.*

Officers believe the SUV was stolen from a relative, which both teens used to go for a ride throughout the city. Nobody else was hurt in the incident, and the GO Bus driver is assisting police. 

It is believed that the crash happened in the middle of the intersection and that the SUV hit the propane tanker first, before hitting the GO bus. The entire front of the SUV is completely ripped apart.

 


The intersection is closed while police investigate, CP24 reports. 

It is unclear if the two teens were related, or who the car belonged to. Nobody else was seriously hurt other than the two in the car, and one has particularly bad injuries. He has been rushed to a trauma centre, but there is still no word on his current condition. 

This isn't the first time a teen has been involved in a major car crash. Last year, another 13-year-old teen got into an accident after getting behind the wheel in Oakville.

Even a 9-year-old has gotten behind the wheel and crashed into the garage of their neighbour's house! This, of course, never ends well. It happens more often than you'd expect. Be safe out there!
