A man has been charged after a pedestrian was struck in a crosswalk and died of his injuries in November, Toronto police say.

Last month, police said they were called to the Kipling Avenue and Ronson Drive area around 6:18 a.m on Nov. 7. The driver, in a grey 2006 Kia, hit a pedestrian as he crossed Kipling Avenue in a crosswalk, they said in a news release.

A male victim was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries and died on Nov.  9, police said. His age has not been released.

Police now say a 56-year-old man from Toronto has been charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing death and criminal negligence causing death.

They said he attended court Thursday morning.
