A 61-year-old man is dead after he was pinned underneath a streetcar on Queen Street.

Officers were called to the scene just after 8:15 p.m. Monday to reports of a man being struck in the area of Queen Street and Broadview Avenue.

Police said it appears the man was riding his bicycle when, for an unknown reason, he lost control of his bike and struck a parked car.

The man fell off his bike and landed on the streetcar tracks, where he was then hit by the streetcar.

The victim was pronounced dead on the scene.

Queen Street was closed between Broadview Avenue and the Don Valley Parkway, but has since re-opened.
