Car and GO Train Collide in Oakville
Emergency crews are on scene in Oakville after a car and GO train collided on Wednesday evening.
The incident, involving one vehicle, took place east of the Oakville GO station, near Chartwell Rd. and Cornwall Rd., around 7 p.m.
“The driver, thankfully, was able to get out of the vehicle,” said Halton police Sgt. Milenko Cimbur.
“There’s no injuries at all.”
The car was hit by two GO trains — the first was an equipment train which was out of service, said Metrolinx spokeswoman Vanessa Barrasa.
The vehicle “was stuck on the level crossing,” she said.
“There was a passenger train coming through the crossing,” which also struck the car.
“At least there was no injuries. That’s the good news,” said Barrasa.
Train trips along the Lakeshore West line are starting and ending at Clarkson GO as a result, with GO buses shuttling passengers between Bronte and Clarkson.
It’s unclear how many passengers are currently on board the second train.
“it is a little later in the evening,” said Barrasa, adding it’s “an inconvenience” nonetheless for riders.
Anyone traveling between Aldershot and Union can expect delays.
Cimbur said he doesn’t expect the line to be shut down for much longer.
