Man dies after being hit by van on Victoria Park

A 35-year-old man has died in hospital two days after he was hit by a van in the city’s east end.

Police say around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, the victim was trying to cross Victoria Park Avenue, near O’Connor Drive, when he stepped into the path of a northbound Ford Econoline van.

He and two friends ahead of him were crossing midblock.

Paramedics took the man to hospital with life-threatening head injuries, and he died on Thursday.

So far, the driver of the van, a 31-year-old man, has not been charged.
