A man was rushed to hospital Friday evening with life-threatening injuries after his electric scooter collided with a vehicle downtown.
Toronto police tweeted they were initially called to University Avenue and Elm Street, a block south of Gerrard Street West, for reports of a cyclist "struck by a driver."
Const. Alex Li, a police spokesperson, later told CBC News several people called in a little after 6:30 p.m. saying a pedestrian had been struck.
But then, officers found a man with injuries who had been riding an e-scooter, Li said.
Paramedics took the man to hospital.
The driver remained at the scene.
Police say University Avenue is closed southbound at Gerrard Street West while they investigate.
