Driver knocks over baby in stroller at Abbotsford intersection

A mom was pushing her 18-month-old son in a crosswalk at Sumas Way and South Fraser Way.

A driver knocked over a stroller containing an 18-month-old baby on Monday afternoon in Abbotsford, but the child was not harmed.

The boy was being pushed by his mom, who was walking from east to west in the north crosswalk at South Fraser Way and Sumas Way at about 3:45 p.m.

A driver in a pickup truck was making a left turn from South Fraser Way, when he clipped the front end of the stroller and knocked it onto its side, said Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald.

The driver did not stop, and police are now hoping to talk to him. MacDonald said it’s possible that he did not realize he had hit the stroller.

The man is described as Caucasian and in his mid- to late-20s. He was driving a bluish-green, four-door Dodge pickup with a yellow logo or writing on the passenger side and a rack covering the back window.

Anyone with information is asked to call Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225.
