GO bus sails off 407, lands in farmer's field
Wednesday, February 13, 2019, 7:36 AM - A busload of passengers got a scare Tuesday evening when a GO Transit bus slid off the road and landed in a farmer's field just before 6 p.m. in Mississauga, according to Metrolinx.
However, no injuries were reported.
The bus was travelling on Hwy. 407 westbound near Derry Road when the driver lost control.
Passengers had to wait just under an hour before they were transferred to a new bus.
"Unfortunately, because of the weather conditions, that bus will have to stay where it is tonight," said Amanda Ferguson, a spokesperson for Metrolinx. She said they hope to remove the bus by tomorrow morning.
There's no word on what caused the bus to leave the road, although OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt described conditions as "slushy" in the wake of the winter storm that swept through the Greater Toronto Area Tuesday.
