A toddler was taken to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Wednesday morning after a stroller was struck by a vehicle in north Edmonton.
A spokesperson with the Edmonton Police Service said a stroller with a two-year-old girl in it was struck at the intersection of 122 Avenue and 87 Street. It happened just before 8 a.m.
The child was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police. The woman pushing the strollers was not struck or injured, police said.
“The child was strapped into a car seat in the stroller, and this likely contributed to her survival,” a statement from the EPS said.
Police said the driver of the vehicle stayed on the scene. Charges are now pending against the 35-year-old man who was driving the vehicle.
