TORONTO – Service on the Barrie GO Transit line  has resumed after a  dump truck collided with a train near Keele and Teston in Vaughan Friday morning.

Police say the driver of the truck suffered minor injuries and no one on the train was hurt.

The accident happened just south of the King City GO Station. As a result, service along the Barrie Line was temporarily suspended and the commute this morning was significantly delayed.

Shuttle buses were in operation to move passengers from and to stations.

GO Transit officials say repair personnel were called to assess the scene and the scene is now cleared.

  • The Allandale Waterfront 06:52 – Union 08:33 train trip is cancelled.  Passengers aboard this train were transferred on to:
  • The Allandale Waterfront 07:22 – Union 09:03 train trip at the Maple GO station which is on the move, delayed 166 minutes making all stops to Union.
  • Passengers may use their GO/PRESTO fare media at a staffed TTC entrance at Yorkdale, Sheppard, Finch and Downsview
  • GO Bus service is also provided for passengers travelling back northbound.
