A 23-year-old woman is dead after she was hit by a vehicle near the Flatiron Building downtown on Friday afternoon.

Toronto paramedics were called to Church St. and Front St., around 12:37 p.m. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

Const. Clint Stibbe said she was crossing the street when a vehicle — driving south along Church St., and turning westbound onto Wellington St. — struck her and a 26-year old man.

The man was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Stibbe said the driver of the vehicle is cooperating with police.

Live TV footage of the scene showed a flatbed truck parked in the intersection, surrounded by police tape.

Roads north of the Church St and Front St. intersection have been closed for an investigation.
