It happened around 3:30 p.m.

Police said the woman was crossing the street while pushing a stroller with a three-year-old inside, when they were struck, and the driver then drove away from the scene.

“What I heard was the screaming, and when I looked, she was dragged a little ways and the baby was dragged more and it took off,” a witness said.

Both the woman and child were taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries not believed to be life-threatening.

The driver later turned himself in to police. Police said he was afraid of a crowd that gathered at the scene.
