Millwood Road was completely closed between Laird and Overlea this afternoon, as the police Collision Reconstruction Unit investigated a serious car crash at Redway Road.

Both the CBC and Global television evening news broadcasts had a video clip of Sergeant Tim Burrows taken at the scene of the crash.

But here's the wacky part: he didn't talk about the collision behind him at all, he was being interviewed about the number of speed traps in Toronto, apparently the worst in North America, based on some statistics which any high school math student could tell you are bogus and ridiculous.

Update: 2010-09-07

I've revised this story to replace the word "accident" with "car crash" or "collision." Sergeant Burrows doesn't like the word "accident" and I agree with him. See Is a car crash an accident? in Saturday's Toronto Star.
