It was a tragic day on the wet roads on Thursday in Toronto and by noon 10 pedestrians had been hit by vehicles.

One pedestrian, a 63-year-old woman was attempting to cross mid-block in midtown Toronto, when she was struck by a vehicle.


She was rushed to the hospital but later died from her injuries.


Investigation for another incident of hit-and-run case in Scarborough is in progress.
