Toronto police are appealing for witnesses after a city transit bus struck and killed a 14-year-old girl.

Police say the girl was crossing a street (at Finch Avenue East at Neilson Road) in Scarborough on Friday night when she was struck by a Toronto Transit Commission bus as it made a right turn.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the bus, which was being driven by a 27-year-old man, failed to remain at the scene of the collision.

The TTC says the driver is being interviewed by police and that the transit agency is co-operating with the investigation.

It says video from the bus has been downloaded to help investigators and that the “thoughts and prayers” of the TTC go out to the girl’s family.
