News: Driver hits, severely injures 19-year-old and baby in stroller in East Valley

LAS VEGAS, NV – A driver struck a 19-year-old pushing a baby in a stroller in the East Valley on Saturday night, causing severe injuries to both victims, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The crash happened on Boulder Highway near E Twain Avenue just after 8 p.m., as 19-year-old Jawuan Richardson, a 20-year-old woman, and a 1-year-old baby boy riding in a stroller were crossing the street at a crosswalk. The driver of a Kia Optima then crashed into Richardson and the stroller, causing the baby to be ejected onto the road. Richardson was then struck by a second vehicle.

Richardson and the infant were taken to the hospital for the treatment of critical injuries.

The female pedestrian was not hurt in the crash.

Authorities do not believe that either driver was under the influence when the crash happened.
