A man struck by a vehicle downtown this morning has been taken to hospital for treatment.
The collision occurred near King and Sherbourne streets at around 7 a.m.
Police initially said that the male was struck after getting off of a streetcar in the area but the TTC has since denied that.
In a tweet, TTC spokesperson Stuart Green said the victim was not exiting a streetcar at the time.
Our thoughts are with the victim of a pedestrian/auto collision on King St. this morning. Our information is that the pedestrian was not exiting a #TTC streetcar when this happened, but we have an operator who witnessed the incident and is fully co-operating with police.— TTCStuart (@TTCStuart) February 28, 2020
Police say the victim’s injuries are believed to be serious and he has been transported to a trauma centre.
Sherbourne Street was shut down in both directions between Adelaide and Front streets for several hours for the police investigation.
