2 girls, 13, in serious to life-threatening condition after being struck by vehicle in Agincourt
Two 13-year-old girls were struck by a vehicle while attempting to cross a roadway just outside of a Scarborough school on Monday afternoon.

The incident occurred at around 3:30 p.m. at the intersection of Midland and Lockie avenues, which is just outside of Agincourt Junior Public School and Agincourt Collegiate Institute.

It was just after school was let out so we expect traffic in the area to be a little bit more congested with parents trying to pick up their kids or maybe the school buses are loading kids up to be taken home so I expect there will be more traffic, Const. David Hopkinson said after the crash.

One of the girls is in critical condition, while the second girl is in serious condition, paramedics said.

In a statement, the Toronto District School Board said the girls were students at Sir Alexander Mackenzie Senior Public School, just a block or so away from where they were struck.

A spokesperson with the Toronto District School Board, Ryan Bird, said the girls are students at Sir Alexander Mackenzie Senior Public School.

Two girls have been taken to hospital, one of them with critical injuries, after being struck by a vehicle outside a school in the Agincourt area in Scarborough.

Our thoughts are with the students and we are supporting their families in any way we can, he said. In the meantime, social work support is being made available to students and staff who are understandably upset.

The girls had been walking east to west across a block on Midland Avenue, while the vehicle approached southbound, said Sgt. Edmund Wong of Toronto police's traffic services. The pair were struck as they crossed Lockie Avenue, he said.

I do know that the vehicle has remained on scene, Hopkinson said. It is being described as a van but I dont know any further information other than that.

"Our thoughts are with the students and we are supporting their families in any way we can," Bird said, adding social work supports are available to students and staff. 

Hopkinson said roads were blocked off in the area as an investigation into the matter was conducted.

We have officers on the scene blocking off Midland in this area and we will be reconstructing this collision scene, he said.

A Toronto Paramedics spokesperson told Global News the 13-year-old girl was being rushed to a trauma centre with critical injuries at the time of the collision. The second teen, who is also 13, received serious injuries. She remains in hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A six-year-old child has been airlifted to a Toronto-area hospital after a collision in Port Perry on Tuesday afternoon, Durham police say.

“Our thoughts are with the students and we are supporting their families in any way we can. In the meantime, social work support is being made available to students and staff who are understandably upset,” TDSB spokesperson Ryan Bird wrote.

Toronto police say two teenage girls, both aged 13, have been struck by a vehicle while crossing the street near an Agincourt school on Monday afternoon.

Toronto police say a teenager, who originally had life-threatening injuries, is now in serious but stable condition after being struck by a minivan outside a Scarborough school Monday afternoon.

Police say the driver, a 64-year-old woman, remained on scene. There’s no word yet on possible charges but police say at this point there’s no indication of impairment or criminality.

In a statement, the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) said both girls are students at nearby Sir Alexander Mackenzie Senior Public School.

Sadly, two students (Grade 7) from Sir Alexander Mackenzie Senior Public School were struck and injured this afternoon while crossing at the intersection of Midland Ave. and Lockie Ave., the statement read.

“Our thoughts are with the students and we are supporting their families in any way we can,” said TDSB spokesperson Ryan Bird. “In the meantime, social work support is being made available to students and staff who are understandably upset.

“The city won’t do anything about it,” one father of two girls said. “We’ve asked to put up cameras, we are willing to pay for the cameras ourselves and the city is giving us a hard time … as residents what can we do?”

Toronto police Sgt. Edmund Wong said officers are doing their best to assure drivers don’t speed in the area.

Two girls have been taken to hospital, one of them with critical injuries, after being struck by a vehicle outside a school in the Agincourt area in Scarborough.

“My understanding is that there is a lot of enforcement being done (here),” he said. “We do our best and whenever we have the man power, we put man power in this area to enforce the speed laws.”
