Police need public's help in identifying woman struck by vehicle


Toronto Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle at St. Clair and Oakwood Avenue, just before 7:30 this morning. 

The driver remained at the scene.  Police say speed was apparently not a factor in the accident.

The woman was rushed to hospital, but suffered "life-altering injuries". 

Constable Dave Hopkinson tells Newstalk1010 that police need help in finding the woman's family.

"The problem we're having is we have not been able to identify this woman. We believe she is Vietnamese and with her injuries, it's very very difficult to communicate with her and she didn't have any (identification) on her."

She's described as Asian, between 60 to 70 years-old, with a thin build. She was wearing a white shirt with black vertical stripes, dark brown corduroy pants, white socks and black running shoes.

"We're trying to reach out to try and find out who she is - maybe her family, maybe she's been missing - and they can contact us."

If you know who this woman is, you're asked to contact Toronto Police at 416-808-1900.
