A pedestrian was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries after he was hit by a streetcar in west-end Toronto.

The collision happened just before 7 a.m. Monday at The Queensway and Ellis Avenue just south of High Park.

Toronto police said a man in his 40s was temporarily pinned under the streetcar but was freed by firefighters.

Westbound streetcar service at the Humber loop was suspended for the investigation but has since resumed.
