19-year-old critically injured, driver arrested after Flemingdon-area collision

A pedestrian was critically injured and a driver was arrested at the site of a collision near Don Mills Road and Gateway Boulevard last night, police said in a news release today.

Shortly after 11 p.m. three vehicles were reported speeding south on Don Mills when one of them struck a 19-year-old male sitting in a TTC bus shelter on the east side, just south of Gateway.

A white 2015 BMW X6 had lost control, entered the northbound lanes, mounted the sidewalk and struck the pedestrian in the TTC bus shelter, police reported.

The male pedestrian suffered critical injuries and was rushed to hospital.

The 18-year-old driver of the vehicle was arrested at the scene and charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm, according to police.

The two other speeding vehicles — one described as vehicle, possibly a Mercedes, and the other thought to be black, possibly an Audi — were last seen driving southbound on Don Mills.

Anyone who may have security or dash camera footage of the area or incident is asked to contact investigators.
