Police now believe the man was hit by a vehicle and the incident is the city’s 11th traffic fatality of the year.

Toronto Police were called to the area of Victoria Park Ave. and Finch Ave. E. for a man found by a passerby in the southwest corner of the intersection just after the noon-hour on June 13.

The man, who has since been identified as Candelario Alfredo Marquez, 69, of Scarborough, was conscious at the time but unable to communicate.

Paramedics transported Marquez to hospital with unknown injuries and he was pronounced dead a short while later.
