Yet another incident involving a garbage truck in Toronto.

This time it was a 21 year old woman who was left fighting for her life, after being struck by a garbage truck on Tuesday afternoon at Royal York Road and Bell Royal Court.

Constable Clint Stibbe with the Traffic Services division of Toronto Police says they have determined the woman was hit, while standing on the corner of the two streets.

She was actually left in the roadway, with the driver of the truck unaware that she'd been struck.

Police say the 39 year old man behind the wheel of the truck, continued on his route, only seeing the woman lying in the street later.

No charges have been laid and police are now asking for anyone who may have seen what happened, to give them a call.

Stibbe says there's no information indicating she was using a 'distracting electronic device', but admits that is something investigators are going to look into.

A 14 year old girl was killed after being struck by a struck by a dump truck, while walking to the first day of school near Finch and Keele.

Also, a 5 year old girl was struck and killed by a garbage truck while walking home from school in Scarborough back in March.
