Another pedestrian has been hit and killed on Toronto streets.
Police say a 77-year-old woman was hit by a car near Yonge St and Steeles Avenue around 6:15pm Wednesday.
Police say the senior was crossing Dumont St, mid-intersection near Otonabee Ave at the time. She was rushed from the residential area to hospital where she later died.
It isn't clear the 26-year-old woman behind the wheel of a Corolla will face any charges.
This is the 61st traffic fatality on Toronto roadways this year. 38 of those deaths have been pedestrians.
Traffic Services Constable Clint Stibbe says of those 38 pedestrians killed, 22 were elderly.
Constable Stibbe says many of the collisions are the results of people crossing mid-block and underestimating the speed of the traffic coming towards them. Because many of those killed are elderly, they are not able to cross the street in time.
Police plan to step up their presence in various traffic trouble spots in order to raise awareness through education and enforcement.
