Officials say a woman has been taken to hospital after she was hit by a falling piece of concrete at Union Station during Thursday’s evening rush hour.

Toronto police and paramedics said they were called to the Bay West Teamway before 5:30 p.m. with reports a pedestrian was struck.

Paramedics took the woman to hospital with unspecified injuries.

In an update released on Twitter Thursday evening, the City of Toronto said the walkway will be closed “until further notice.”

“Safety is central to everything we do, and @Metrolinx and the City of Toronto (@TorontoComms) have sent engineers to the scene to investigate. Updates will be provided as we receive them,” the update said.

Commuters were encouraged to use the Bay East Teamway, the Great Hall, or the York East and York West Teamways to access Union Station.
