A 31-year-old year old man was killed Saturday when he was hit by a minivan on St Clair Ave, west of Weston Rd, around 5 a.m. The driver of the van did not stick around.

Police said Saturday afternoon they had located the van in west Toronto and that "an arrest is anticipated."

The victim was initially pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, but revived three different times en route to hospital.  He was pronounced dead in hospital just after 8:30 am.

It is just one four crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists Saturday morning.

A 16-year-old female pedestrian was hit by a vehicle at Bathurst Street and St. Clair Avenue West. The young woman was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries to her head. The driver of the vehicle has been identified as a 20-year-old female.

At Lawrence & Warden Aves, a 63-year-old male pedestrian was also struck by a 25-year-old male driving a 2013 Toyota. Paramedics say the victim is in serious condition.

A cyclist was hit by a streetcar at Queen & Dufferin Sts. He has minor injuries and is expected to recover.
