The fatal crash happened just before noon at Grenview Blvd. and Bloor St. W., just east of Royal York Rd.
Initial reports indicated the woman was a senior, said Const. Craig Brister of the Toronto Police Service. She later died in hospital.
An hour earlier, however, a separate collision in Scarborough left another female pedestrian with life-threatening injuries.
That incident happened at McCowan Rd. and Finch Ave. E, in the Agincourt area. The woman was rushed to hospital via emergency run.
The driver, meanwhile, was charged with an impaired driving offence, said Brister.
A third incident happened at around 12:30 p.m., when a third pedestrian was hit by another vehicle in Riverdale, near Logan and Victor Aves. That victim had only minor injuries.
And a fourth happened shortly after 1 p.m. at Wicksteed Ave. and Laird Dr., in Leaside. The victim’s injuries were minor, but the vehicle fled the scene after the incident, said Toronto police.
A fifth pedestrian was hit at around 6:20 p.m. at Fern Ave. and Roncesvalles Ave., and was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
The sixth incident occurred just after 7 p.m. when an elderly man was struck at Markham Rd. and Milner Ave. in Scarborough. He was taken to a trauma centre with serious injuries, paramedics said. Police have closed the road south of Sheppard Ave.
“This year there have been 23 senior pedestrian fatalities, representing over 63 per cent of pedestrian fatalities,” Toronto Police said in a news release Sunday. Thirty-six pedestrians have died in collisions so far this year, which represents about 60 per cent of traffic fatalities in Toronto.
