A 15-year-old boy is dead after he was struck by two vehicles in Vaughan on Thursday morning, police say.

York Regional Police officers were called to Weston Road and Villa Royale Avenue, south of Major Mackenzie Drive, just before 7:30 a.m.

The teen was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries where he later died.

York police Const. Lisa Moskaluk told CityNews they believe the teen was on his way to school when he was struck.

“There were as many as two vehicles investigators believe were involved that had struck the youth as he was crossing the road,” she said.

Police say the vehicles involved remained on scene.

The teen was identified as Akbar Akbar Zada in a letter sent home to families by principal Sandra Sardone of Tommy Douglas Secondary School.
