The Toronto Police Service (TPS) is seeking information in connection with a fatal collision that occurred in the city’s east end on Friday night.

On July 23, just after 9:00 p.m., police responded to a report of a personal injury collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian in the Kingston Road and Midland Avenue area.

It is alleged that a 24-year-old man, driving a black 2013 Volkswagen Jetta westbound on Kingston Road, struck a 71-year-old man crossing the street mid-block.

The pedestrian succumbed to his injuries at the scene.
