A man is lucky to be alive after his SUV struck a train downtown Friday morning.

The vehicle ran into the side of a GO train just before 7am at Strachan Avenue and Wellington. The car collided with the Union Station-bound train, causing service delays along the busy rail route.

The driver was shaken, but didn’t sustain any injuries. A GO official has said the safety barrier was down and lights were flashing when the collision happened.

The accident has caused serious backups along the downtown rail corridor. GO has had to hold several trains and make some cancellations on several lines, including Barrie-Bradford, Lakeshore East, Milton, and Georgetown.
