Police said the same vehicle had crashed into several other vehicles in the area of Broadway and Edmonton Street a few minutes before the woman was hit.

They say the vehicle had been reported stolen, but investigators believe the vehicle’s owner was actually the man behind the wheel.

A 35-year-old man has been arrested and is facing a number of charges, police say.
