BREAKING: Toronto police report scaffolding collapse

TORONTO — Toronto police are reporting scaffolding has collapsed on the 16th floor of a building in the city.

Police posted a Tweet at about 10:44 a.m. this morning stating a construction crane had collapsed on a building at Stevenson Road and Silverstone Drive. They later updated that to say that it was scaffolding.

Toronto police were called to 60 Stevenson Road at 10:13 a.m. to respond to a hazard. Emergency crews were on scene. There are no reported injuries and police remain at the scene for road closures, said a Toronto Police Services spokesperson in an email to the Daily Commercial News.

Toronto Fire was also called to the scene.

“We found scaffolding that had fallen,” said a Toronto Fire spokesperson. “(There was) some scaffolding hanging on the roof area. No injuries reported.”

The Ministry of Labour has been notified.

Kipling Avenue and Stevenson Drive remains closed.
