Police make arrest in hit and run at streetcar shelter Toronto police have made an arrest in the hit and run at a downtown streetcar stop last weekend that left a young man clinging to life in hospital. Police were called to the area of College Street and Spadina Avenue shortly before 2 a.m. last Sunday after a man was struck by an SUV while standing at a transit shelter. The victim, a 21-year-old male, was rushed to a trauma centre with serious injuries. Police later said the man's injuries were life-threatening. At the time, Toronto police Const. David Hopkinson told CBC Toronto that the SUV driver had mounted a median and hit the pedestrian.

The Toronto Transit Commission said the collision prompted the TTC to divert the 506 Carlton streetcar temporarily but regular service has resumed. Toronto police have taped off the transit shelter as they continue to search for witnesses and security camera video.
