TORONTO - A man died when an out-of-control airport limo veered off a roadway and crashed into the fence at the home of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Colby Armstrong early Monday.
The 53-year-old man driving the Lincoln Town Car died in the 5:53 a.m. crash on Royal York Rd. north of Dundas St.
Toronto Const. Tony Vella said the car was northbound on Royal York Rd. when the driver suffered a medical condition.
The black, four-door car mounted the east curb and struck two trees, landscaping stones and the wooden fence.
The car was crunched by the impact.
Armstrong said he heard the terrific impact of the crash but felt uncomfortable talking about it because the driver died.
