An Embraer ERJ-145LR, operating American Eagle flight AA3725 from New York-JFK Airport, was involved in a runway incursion incident at Toronto-Pearson International Airport, Canada.
The flight had landed on runway 06R and was instructed by the Toronto Tower controller to exit the runway via taxiway D3 and hold short of runway 06L, which was in use for departures. This instruction was read back correctly by AA3725.
Subsequently United flight UA211, a Boeing 737-924ER bound for Chicago-O'Hare, Illinois, USA, was cleared for takeoff from runway 06L.
As UA211 was accelerating down the runway, the Tower controller noticed that the AA3725 was crossing the stop bar for runway 06L. The controller came on the frequency and shouted "Envoy 37-25 Stop !"
After UA211 had departed without incident, AA3725 was cleared to cross the runway.

Taxiway D3 crosses runway 06L at a distance of 1830 m from the runway threshold.
