Driver backs into stroller with child, drives off

Jul 11, 2013, 12:03 AM

MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) – Police in western Michigan are trying to identify a driver who backed into a woman pushing a stroller with her child inside and dragged the stroller a short distance before fleeing.

Police have released video of the stroller being hit and dragged by a minivan in the parking lot of a Muskegon store. They’re working to identify the driver and have released images of him in the store.

The Muskegon Chronicle (

Police say the 18-year-old Muskegon woman was pushing the stroller outside Sam’s Drink All on June 25 when the van backed into her. The video shows the van’s driver stopping only briefly while the mother pulls the boy from the stroller.
