Messy winter storm yesterday
The Greater Toronto Area was slammed by an ugly mix of rain, snow, strong winds and freezing temperatures Sunday that caused chaos on the roads and scattered power outages.
As the nearly 35 mm of heavy rain and rolling fog that hit in the morning turned to heavy snowfall and roaring winds of up to 85 km/h, Toronto police reported a flurry of weather-related collisions on city roads — including a six-vehicle crash near the intersection of McNicoll Avenue and McCowan Road and a TTC bus that slid off the road into a tree, injuring three.
