Car Strikes Jogging Stroller In Brookline
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A car hit a stroller carrying a 6-month-old baby girl in Brookline.
“I heard the mom say, ‘Oh my God!’ and seen the stroller it was a baby, so I’m like screaming, ‘It’s a baby!’” Bridgette Wright, a witness, said.
This happened at about 8 p.m. on Pioneer Avenue. A car turning onto Woodbourne Avenue hit the jogging stroller.
“It got the whole side of the stroller – thankfully, it’s a $600 stroller that has steel frames that probably saved … I mean, there’s signs that are marked, but no one ever pays attention to them,” Steve Klayko, the baby’s father, said. “The cars are always zooming by.”
The driver said it was the darkness – not speed – that caused him to hit the stroller.
“When I was coming around the corner, it’s a dark corner, and the baby’s mother dressed dark and I just didn’t see them until it was too late,” he told KDKA-TV. “Thank God, nobody’s hurt.”
Police questioned him at the scene. They released no information about charges.
Neighbors say they’ve been complaining about the speed of traffic and the lighting in the area.
