Transit union will not comment on police investigation of fatal bus accident

TORONTO, Sept. 1, 2011 /CNW/ - Local 113 of the Amalgamated Transit Union will not be commenting on the investigation underway by the Toronto Police Services into Tuesday's collision of a TTC bus with a crane truck in which one passenger died and 13 others were injured.

"It has always been our policy to not comment on matters involving our members that are under police investigation or that are, or may be, before the courts," said Bob Kinnear, president of the union.

"That does not stop us from expressing our profound sadness and distress that one of our passengers was killed in this accident and several others were injured. Our deepest condolences go out to the friends and family of the victim."

Kinnear added that the union may comment "once the legal process has fully taken its course."
