A 59-year-old man was killed in a collision in Etobicoke Friday afternoon, Toronto police say.
Emergency crews were called to the intersection of Burnhamthorpe Road and Shaver Avenue North, west of Martin Grove Road, around noon for a crash.
Police said a gold Pontiac Montana van and a black sedan were travelling west at a high rate of speed when the van collided with a black Honda CRV that was entering the intersection.
The driver of the Honda CRV, a 59-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The driver of the van was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said they are searching for the driver of the black sedan who “slowed down” after the collision before fleeing the area.
