A family is safe after a TTC bus crashed into the front of their home in Scarborough early Thursday morning.

Emergency crews were called to the scene on Oasis Boulevard, near Morningside and McNicoll avenues, just after 1:30 a.m.

The bus veered off the road, across a lawn and crashed into the front of a home. A second home was also damaged in the crash.

Police said there were no passengers on the bus at the time of the crash.

The driver was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Police said both houses were evacuated and the families will not be allowed back home until the buildings have been deemed safe.

“We’re concerned that there may be some structural damage with the house so the engineer will be attending the address tomorrow morning to determine what the damage to the house is and is it safe to reoccupy at this point in time,” Insp. Jim Gotell explained.

The bus has since been towed away from the scene as part of the investigation.
