For at least the third time in two days, Toronto police are investigating a collision that sent a pedestrian to hospital.
The latest incident occurred when a man was hit by a vehicle on Lawrence Avenue, west of Weston Road, at about 3 a.m. on Friday.
After the collision, the driver stopped at the scene and waited for police to arrive, and the pedestrian was taken to Sunnybrook hospital, where he underwent treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.
On Thursday, one pedestrian was killed and a second was seriously injured in two separate collisions on Toronto streets.
The fatal collision occurred on Sheppard Avenue, just west of Kennedy Road, shortly before 8 a.m.
A man was standing on a pedestrian island in the middle of the road when he was hit by a vehicle.
The pedestrian was rushed to a trauma centre, where he died of his injuries.
Later, a 15-year-old boy was hit by a pickup truck when he was crossing Kennedy Road at Treverton Drive at about 8:15 p.m.
Police said the boy suffered life-threatening injuries.
These are the latest incidents in what has been a deadly season for pedestrians on Toronto streets. Police are investigating a number of collisions that killed or seriously injured pedestrians in November and December.
Many occurred in darkness in the early-morning or evening hours.
