An elderly woman is in critical condition at Sunnybrook hospital after being hit by a car on Bathurst Street, near Castlefield Avenue earlier this evening.

The woman, 79, was crossing east to west mid-block just before 9 p.m. when she was struck by a southbound Toyota Corolla.

The woman was without vital signs at the scene, but was revived en route to the hospital.
