13-year-old in serious but stable condition after being hit by minivan outside east-end Toronto school
Toronto police say a teenager, who originally had life-threatening injuries, is now in serious but stable condition after being struck by a minivan outside a Scarborough school Monday afternoon.
Police said two children were crossing the intersection of Midland and Lockie avenues, just north of Sheppard Avenue East, at around 3:30 p.m. when the collision happened.
A Toronto Paramedics spokesperson told Global News the 13-year-old girl was being rushed to a trauma centre with critical injuries at the time of the collision. The second teen, who is also 13, received serious injuries. She remains in hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police also said there was also a third teenager involved but avoided being struck by the vehicle.
According to a statement from the Toronto District School Board, the girls are students at Sir Alexander Mackenzie Senior Public School.
“Our thoughts are with the students and we are supporting their families in any way we can. In the meantime, social work support is being made available to students and staff who are understandably upset,” TDSB spokesperson Ryan Bird wrote.
The intersection is also close to two other schools, Agincourt Junior Public School and Agincourt Collegiate Institute.
Police said the driver remained at the scene of the collision and cooperated with officers as they investigated the circumstances leading up to the incident.
As of Monday evening, there was no word on charges.
