A 21-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries after he was struck at a streetcar shelter early Sunday morning.

Police were called to College Street and Spadina Avenue just before 2 a.m.

It was reported that a man was standing at the streetcar stop when a vehicle mounted the TTC traffic median, hitting the glass shelter and the pedestrian.

The man was taken to hospital in critical condition.

A black SUV reportedly fled the scene.

Investigators said they found a side view mirror at the scene and have determined that the part belongs to a Ford Expedition, 2015 to 2017 model, or a Lincoln Navigator, 2007 to 2017 model.

Police are urging the driver to speak with a lawyer and then contact investigators.

A security image of the vehicle has been released by police.
