Service has resumed on the UP Express and Kitchener GO train line after an earlier shutdown Friday caused by a truck with a boom that struck a rail bridge in west-end Toronto.

Trains began running again on both lines shortly after 9 a.m.

The collision that caused the disruption happened around 7:25 a.m., according to police. The bridge is just east of the corner of St. Clair Avenue West and Weston Road. It does not appear that anyone was injured.

Service on the UP Express was entirely suspended while GO trains were unable to run between Weston and Bloor stations.

A spokesperson for Metrolinx said delays and cancellations are possible as the transit tries to get service back on schedule.
