A five-year-old boy has died in hospital after police say he fell off his bike and was struck by a vehicle in Parkdale on Wednesday.

It happened around 6:30 p.m. at Lake Shore Boulevard West and Jameson Avenue.

Police say he was riding his bicycle westbound on the bike path when he fell into live traffic. He was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries, but eventually succumbed to his injuries.

The driver of the vehicle remained on the scene but there’s no word on whether any charges will be laid.

Lake Shore in both directions between Jameson and Parkside Drive was closed for several hours as police wrapped up their investigation.
