An 18-year-old woman is dead after being hit by an unmarked York Regional Police truck on St. Clair Ave E and Warden Ave.

Toronto EMS tell NewsTalk 1010 the call came in at about 8:20 pm Wednesday. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

Toronto Police say Ontario's Special Investigations Unit has been notified about the crash and has invoked their mandate. The SIU investigates whenever a member of the public is seriously hurt or killed during an interaction with police.

It's the second pedestrian fatality in Toronto in less than 24 hours. At around 1:30 am Wednesday, a man was hit and killed by a taxi on Danforth Rd, near Birchmount Rd.

    Wow.

    you guys are certainly letting this story go the bottom of the news pile FAST.

    This is important coverage. Anyone who thinks other wise is foolish!

      @JohnVoter I strongly agree John! This poor girl potentially got killed by police due to their reckless driving. If this was the other way around it would have been a huge hype in the media! I'm really sad and dissapointed to see the media help police cover this up.
