A Toronto Transit Commission bus has snapped a hydro pole in two on Jane Street.

The TTC 35 Jane bus was travelling southbound when the accident occurred just after 11:30 a.m. near St. Marks Road.

Toronto Fire Services says a 79-year-old woman who was on the bus was transported to hospital with hand and lower back injuries. 

The hydro pole was completely severed at the bottom, but the top portion is still hanging from the wires. Toronto police traffic services are on scene.

A fire hydrant was also damaged in the accident.
