Woman, 53, seriously injured - Police Seek Hit and Run Driver

The hit and run vehicle involved in a pedestrian-struck accident Tuesday has been identified as a 1994 to 1997 black Honda Accord.
The vehicle sustained damage to its front passenger side when it hit and seriously injured a 53-year-old woman.
The woman was helping the victim of an earlier accident in which a pedestrian was struck by a car on Midland Avenue at McNicoll Avenue around 6:15 a.m. The vehicle involved in the earlier incident had remained at the scene.
The hit-and-run victim was taken to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre with life-threatening injuries.
"She's sustained multiple fractures throughout her body plus her head injury." said Sgt. Tim Burrows of the Toronto police traffic services unit.
The victim of the earlier collision, a 64-year-old woman, was taken to The Scarborough Hospital's General Division for treatment of a non-life-threatening hip injury.
Burrows said police have security video from a business that shows the suspect vehicle and he urged the driver to turn himself in.
Anyone with information is asked to call traffic services at 416-808-1900 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
