A woman said to be in her 80s was struck by a taxi at the corner of Gould and Church streets, and escorted to the hospital just after noon Friday.
The woman was “struck and carried a short distance,” according to Const. T. Price, who attended the scene, after the taxi made a left turn. The victim was crossing with the light.
“She was conscious, breathing, all that sort of stuff,” Price said. “We’re just carrying on with the investigation right now.”
An onlooker allegedly screamed when she witnessed the accident, and is currently speaking to police. Police have closed Church from Gould to Gerrard streets for their investigation.
The extent of the woman’s injuries is unknown, but they are believed to include trauma to the legs and head, according to Ryerson student Ramisha Farooq, who witnessed the accident.
More to come.
