BREAKING Runway incursion during United flight #UA211 takeoff at Toronto Pearson airport

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is investigating after a runway incursion at Toronto Pearson International Airport today.

Safety board spokesperson Chris Krepski told they have sent a team of investigators to the airport to follow up on an incident that happened at the intersection of a taxiway and runway around 11 a.m. today.

United flight #UA211 to Chicago ORD was accelerating to take off when the ATC noticed that American Eagle flight #AA3725 which just landed on runway 06R from JFK was crossing the stop bar for runway 06L.

The traffic controller immediately asked American Eagle Embraer ERJ to stop. United flight #UA211 took off safely to Chicago ORD.
