Toronto Sun - - NEWS -

Toronto po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether street rac­ing was to blame for a fa­tal crash in Scar­bor­ough.

Const. Rob Reid says one driver died on McCowan Rd., just south of Ellesmer Rd., after a car slammed into a tele­phone pole around 10 p.m. Satur­day.

“Wit­nesses are telling us that this car and an­other car were trav­el­ling at what they say is a high rate of speed, “said Reid. “The driver of the sec­ond ve­hi­cle didn’t leave the scene and stuck around and spoke to po­lice and spoke to in­ves­ti­ga­tors at the scene. I think it’s be­ing in­ves­ti­gated to see if there was pos­si­ble street rac­ing in­volved.”

Po­lice did not re­lease in­for­ma­tion about the dead driver.
