Infant in unattended stroller rolls away

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- It was a close call for an infant whose stroller was sent rolling downhill on a downtown Madison street where an SUV without a driver crashed into a tree.

Police say the driver of the SUV turned into the path of a family crossing an intersection Wednesday. The father maneuvered his 3-year-old son out of the way. The mother fell and lost her grip on the stroller which carried the couple's 2-month-old daughter.

WISC-TV reports the SUV driver jumped out to stop the stroller as it rolled downhill, but she failed to put the vehicle in park. The driver tried to get back in the SUV, but was knocked to the ground. The SUV crashed into a nearby tree. The father caught up with the stroller. The baby wasn't hurt, in fact, slept through the entire ordeal.
