Police say they were called to University Avenue near Adelaide Street West shortly before midnight on Canada Day.

One person has been arrested for drunk driving, police say, and the traffic department is now investigating.

The intersection remained closed for more than eight hours after the accident on Saturday morning.

Paramedics say injuries ranged from minor to severe, with half of the victims sustaining serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
