Toronto police confirm to Newstalk 1010 that 28 year old Jay McGinn died on Thursday afternoon. 

Police say that at around 2:30a.m. Saturday morning, that McGinn was struck by a passing vehicle as he attempted to get into a taxi cab.  Police say the driver of the passing vehicle kept going as McGinn lay bleeding on the ground.  The 28-year-old suffered severe head injuries and had been in critical condition at St. Michael’s Hospital, until his passing on Thursday.

A 31-year-old Oshawa woman, Karen Fyfe, was charged with failure to stop causing bodily harm after an incident in the Kensington Market area of the city. Charges against her are expected to be upgraded. 

Outside the courthouse, Karen Fyfe’s father, John spoke briefly with Newstalk 1010’s Amber Gero on Monday.

“I just want to say how bad we feel for the family and the poor young man in the hospital.  Our heart goes out to them.  We are parents, we understand, but what’s been done has been done.  I’m so sorry.”

    Why does the media say she turned herself in? She did not. It was a tip from the public that lead to her arrest.

    RIP Jay McGinn.

    Anyone saying life is fair, is wrong. Let's hope the courts get this one right.

    Justice needs to be served!

      @don was right Not sure what you're on, don was right. The guy was getting into a cab. No, it wasn't her failure to stop that killed the guy. It was her failure to not run over the guy that killed the guy.

      And it takes a special kind of disgusting sorry excuse for a person to run over someone and keep driving. Homicide charges and jail time is definitely warranted.
