A 39-year-old man has been arrested after a vehicle crashed into the front of a store in the city’s west end overnight.

Emergency crews were called to the scene on Lansdowne Avenue, just north of Bloor Street West, around 12:30 a.m. Friday.

The driver allegedly fled the scene after the crash but police were able to track him down and place him in custody.

The crash caused extensive damage to the front of the building. The tenants living in the apartment above the store were ordered out of their home because fire crews were concerned about the structural integrity of the building.

The driver is facing multiple charges, including impaired driving.
