The Toronto Transit Commission is defending the bus driver who hit a utility worker who ended up dying Thursday evening.
The 50-year-old girl was driving a southbound No. 7 bus on Bathurst Street when it slammed to the 42-year-old man from the underpass just north of Dupont Avenue.
The guy, who was about the street acting as becoming a security spotter to obtain a colleague carrying out maintenance function from the bucket lift of a utility truck, was pronounced dead at the scene.
TTC spokesman Brad Ross wouldn't say how much experience the driver has, but said she's well-trained.
