Cops say the 30-year-old victim died Saturday in hospital.
Earlier, police released photos of the luxe-loving driver and his posh vehicle hoping the public will recognize the car or the driver.
According to Toronto Police, the incident happened around 3:15 a.m. on Thursday, near Spadina Ave. and King St. W.
The driver of the car was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed when he slammed into the 30-year-old female pedestrian. He stopped briefly and then fled the scene.
The victim was taken to a trauma centre. Police have not released the woman’s identity.
Sgt. Murray Campbell told reporters at the time of the crash that the suspected hit-and-run driver “knew exactly what happened” but, instead of stopping to help, fled the area.
Police said the light-colored convertible sports car would have noticeable damage to its front end. The suspect vehicle was described as “a white, 2019, or newer, Mercedes AMG GT convertible with a red interior and convertible top.”
At the time of the hit-and-run, the roof of the car was down, making the driver visible. Police said the man has dark hair.
In the press release, police issued stark advice: “Officers would also encourage the man to contact a lawyer and to come forward to police.”
