Girl, 2, hit by van

Tamara Cherry - Toronto Sun

A toddler was taken to hospital after she was struck by a van near the waterfront this morning.
The two-year-old girl was walking south on York St. across Queens Quay W. with a group of kids from the YMCA when she was struck by an eastbound van turning south onto York around 10:30 a.m., Toronto Police Const. Mig Roberts said.
The group of kids had the right-of-way when the little girl was struck at the south end of the intersection, Roberts said.
"The kid was rushed to hospital with a broken femur and other serious injuries," Roberts said.
Charges against the driver are pending, he said.
"It's nice weather out now and there's going to be more pedestrians out," he said. "We urge motorists to pay more attention to the road."
