Toronto police say a pedestrian was left with serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle near Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue Sunday evening.
This accident comes after the launch of pedestrian safety enforcement and education campaign earlier this year.
So far in 2018, there have been over five pedestrian deaths in Ontario.
Police say they received numerous calls notifying them about an accident involving an injured pedestrian at Yonge Street and Erskine Avenue around 6:30 p.m., with some calls saying the pedestrian was thrown a few meters.
The victim was taken to the nearest trauma center with the help of police and paramedics.
