TTC spokesperson Stuart Green said last week the transit agency is investigating the incident. He said the driver was suspended with pay while staff conducted the review.

“We don’t know exactly what happened leading up to this. As part of our investigation, we will look at the condition of the bus, which is back at the garage now to be looked at, as well as speak to the operator and we’ll make those determinations,” Green said.
