HALIFAX – A father and his toddler were taken to hospital after being hit by a vehicle.

The incident happened around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday in the parking lot of the Tim Hortons on St. Margaret’s Bay Road in Upper Tantallon.

Sgt. Mike Lidstone with the RCMP said a 79-year-old man from Tantallon was driving slowly in the parking lot when a 31-year-old, who was wearing dark clothing and carrying his one-year-old daughter, suddenly stepped out in the path of the vehicle.

Lidstone said the man injured his knee while his toddler was “shaken up”.

Both were taken to hospital for assessment.

Lidstone said, so far, no charges have been laid against the male driver.
