Fatal Pedestrian Struck

It was really quiet last night, save for the car accidents. Whenever it rains we can usually count on it being quiet. It seems though that people don't really change driving habits in rain. So if they go 130 km/hr on the 401 in the sunshine they just go the same speed in the rain. It means call after call for cars spun out and cars into the guard rail. I had listened to them all night then I heard this one that sounded so much more serious. The pedestrain was struck just north of St. Clair on Dufferin, crossing the road about 50 meters from a traffic light. First reports said he was thrown, then others said he was possibly vital signs absent. Paramedics tried to save him but the poor guy didn't make it. He didn't have identification on him so now police are trying to figure out who he was, so that next of kin can be notified. A large hole can be seen in the windshield of the Honda minivan that struck him.
