A baby is in life-threatening condition after three pedestrians were struck by an SUV in a hit and run in Scarborough on Sunday, Toronto police say.

The pedestrians were hit in the intersection of Pharmacy Avenue and Ellesmere Road, according to Const. Alex Li, spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service. Emergency crews were called to the scene at about 10:50 a.m.

The baby was in a stroller when struck by the vehicle, Li said.

Toronto police said paramedics rushed the baby to trauma centre in an emergency run.

Paramedics said they took two women to a trauma centre in serious but non-life-threatening condition.

The vehicle involved, described as grey-coloured Dodge Journey, has fled the scene and was last seen travelling southbound on Pharmacy Avenue.

Police said the driver is believed to a white male.

Officers from Toronto police's traffic services have closed the intersection and a shopping plaza nearby as they investigate.

Motorists should expect delays and consider taking alternate routes, police added.
