Teen hit by truck in Scarborough succumbs to injuries

A 15-year-old boy who was struck by a pickup truck while crossing a street in Scarborough last week died in hospital Friday morning, police said.

Officers arrived at the scene on Kennedy Road at Treverton Drive, just north of Eglinton Avenue, around 8:15 p.m. on Dec. 20 and the boy was taken to hospital in critical condition.

There are reports the teen was using his cellphone when he was hit by a 1998 Chevy pickup truck.

The driver was heading southbound in the centre turn lane approaching Treverton Drive at the time of the accident.
