The mother was pushing the stroller across an Oceano Avenue crosswalk. She was walking south in the east cross walk, and she had the right of way when the vehicle collided with them, police said.
Police received multiple 911 calls about the accident around 10:24 a.m. Responders took both the mother and the child to a local hospital with minor injuries.
The child was properly strapped into the stroller when the accident occurred. That prevented the baby from suffering significant injuries, police said.
