Pedestrian killed on Hwy. 404

A 62-year-old man died after being hit by a car in the northbound lanes of Highway 404 near Sheppard Avenue early Saturday morning.

The Ontario Provincial Police said the man, with no fixed address, was crossing from the west side of the highway to the east around 12:30 a.m. when he was hit by a black Volkswagen.

The driver wasn’t hurt and police said he won’t be charged.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released since his next-of-kin still has to be notified.

The northbound lanes of Highway 404 were closed near Finch Avenue while police investigated and they have reopened.
