Officials say a man has been struck and killed in north Scarborough Thursday evening, which marks the fourth pedestrian fatality in Toronto in just over the past 24 hours.
Toronto police and paramedics were called to the McCowan Road and Steeles Avenue East area just before 9:40 p.m. with reports of a collision.
Paramedics said the man died at the scene. Police said the driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and attempted to perform CPR on the victim.
Police closed McCowan Road from south of Steeles Avenue East to Alton Towers Circle for the investigation.
The man’s death comes five hours after a 56-year-old man was hit by a vehicle on Birchmount Road, south of St. Clair Avenue East. The vehicle crashed into a light standard and another vehicle, which sent two people in that vehicle to hospital with minor injuries. A man was taken into custody and faces impaired driving-related charges.
Just before 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, a 33-year-old woman and her five-year-old daughter were struck and killed by a vehicle on Warden Avenue near Ellesmere Road as they attempted to cross the street mid-block. Police said they are looking for the southbound vehicle described as a dark-coloured, 2006-2011 model Honda Civic, that was last seen travelling south on Warden Avenue.
