A teenage mother returning home after shopping for baby clothes for her son was struck and killed by a pickup truck while she was trying to cross the street at a Baltimore county intersection. According to a Baltimore Sun article, the mother was pushing a baby stroller with her son inside when the incident occurred.
The infant boy was not injured in the Maryland pedestrian accident. Family members of the victim believe the young mother pushed the stroller that carried her son out of the way before she was struck and killed. The police could not confirm whether the force of the impact or the mother’s bravery pushed the infant’s stroller away from harm.
The father of the infant had reported the mother and son missing after they failed to return home after a trip to a local shopping center. His worst fears were confirmed when he learned of an accident involving a pedestrian and stroller. The father was reunited with his son at Maryland Shock Trauma Center where the toddler was being held overnight for evaluation.
The driver of the truck stopped his vehicle after the accident to aid the victim.
However, the police are still investigating the case and the driver may still face charges.
