Car with shooting victim crashes on way to hospital

One person was taken to hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg after a car with several occupants and multiple bullet holes crashed at Lawrence and Bayview avenues early Wednesday morning.

Police were called to the scene around 2:15 a.m., and found the front end of the car crushed up against a guardrail. The driver had been trying to get to Sunnybrook hospital before the crash, according to police.

Officers at the scene said the shooting actually occurred on Flemington Road at Blossomfield Drive, near Lawrence Avenue and Allen Road. Police told CBC Toronto video producer Tony Smyth that they located a second victim in that area suffering from a minor gunshot wound.
