A girl under the age of five has been injured after being hit by a vehicle in Toronto‘s east end Wednesday evening, officials say.

Emergency crews were called to Village Green Square, just east of Kennedy Road and north of Highway 401, before 7 p.m. with reports of a collision.

The circumstances leading up the collision weren’t clear as of Wednesday evening, but a Toronto police spokesperson told Global News the driver remained at the scene.

A spokesperson for Toronto Paramedics said the girl was taken to a trauma centre with serious injuries.

However, in an update released late Wednesday, police said the injuries were determined to be non-life-threatening.

Meanwhile, officers closed off the immediate area as investigators collected evidence at the scene.
