A 72-year-old man is in very serious condition at a Toronto hospital after he was hit by a TTC bus Tuesday evening.

The man was walking past the driveway of the TTC Malvern bus yard on Sheppard Avenue just before 7:30 p.m.

A TTC operator was driving his bus into the bus yard and hit the pedestrian when he turned into the driveway.

Sergeant Tim Burrows with the Toronto Police's Traffic Services said the bus driver was travelling at a slow speed and had no passengers on board.

“The victim sustained some internal head trauma and was transported to hospital in life-threatening condition,” said Sgt. Burrows.

Tuesday night, police continued their investigation.

Sgt. Burrows said the driver – who was co-operating with police – has not been charged.
He encouraged witnesses to contact the Traffic Services unit.
