Toronto police say a woman is dead after she was hit by a TTC bus outside of Lawrence West subway station Tuesday evening.

A TTC spokesperson told Global News the collision happened at around 6:05 p.m. as a bus was entering the station, which is located at Allen Road and Lawrence Avenue West.

Police said the 57-year-old woman died at the scene.
