Police hunt for driver who fled crash scene where pedestrian hit

Toronto police are looking for a driver they say ran away on foot after a collision that seriously injured a pedestrian near Seneca College's Newnham Campus on Thursday night. 

Police said the collision happened around 7 p.m. on Finch Ave. E., when a Nissan Pathfinder SUV tried to turn across two lanes of traffic onto Seneca Hill Drive and collided with an oncoming Nissan Maxima. 

The Maxima then left the road and struck a 25-year-old female pedestrian who was in the southeast area of the intersection.

The pedestrian suffered life-threatening injuries and was rushed to hospital.

Police allege the Pathfinder's driver abandoned their vehicle and fled the scene on foot. 

The 46-year-old driver of the Maxima remained at the scene.

Police are urging anyone who witnessed the collision to contact them.
