CityNews | posted Tuesday, Apr 26th, 2016

A man, believed to be in his 50s, has died after being struck by a vehicle in Scarborough on Monday.

Paramedics arrived on scene near Eglinton Avenue and Markham Road just after 10 p.m.

Traffic Services tell 680 NEWS that the driver was arrested for alcohol-related offences.

Eglinton was closed between Beachell Street and Mason Road for the investigation, but has since reopened.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.

The crash was one of several that took place on Monday evening, when the road was wet and dark. Five people and a cyclist were struck, including an 11-year-old child who was taken to hospital with minor injuries after being hit by a car in the north end.
