It happened at around 5 p.m. on Wednesday in the area of Dundas Street West and Anette Street.

The vehicle fled the scene, police said.

The man was then taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The truck was later found, but police have not yet located the driver. Anyone with information is being asked to contact police.
