According to early information released by police, a Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan Maxima collided at the intersection. The second car then hit the 25-year-old woman, who had been in the southeast area of the intersection. The woman was transported to hospital with life-threatening injuries. Following the pedestrian collision, the driver of the Pathfinder fled the scene on foot, making this a hit and run accident. Anyone with information is asked to contact Toronto Police.
First and foremost, we sincerely hope that the young woman injured in this Toronto pedestrian accident will make a complete recovery from her injuries.
This has been a particularly tragic week for pedestrians in Toronto and the GTA. Unfortunately, when pedestrians are struck by cars and trucks, the outcomes are often catastrophic. Pedestrians and their family members do have rights to claim some of their losses following an accident. While the insurance claims process is probably the last thing anyone wants to think about following a serious accident, it is something that must be considered. Unfortunately, our auto insurance laws are complex and have time limits. Failing to act promptly can have significant consequences on your rights. After a serious accident, it is important to have a lawyer working with you to protect your rights and ability to access benefits and make claims for your losses.
