Baby in stroller hit, dragged by vehicle in Squamish: RCMP

A baby is lucky to be alive after a dramatic incident in Squamish on Monday night.

The Sea-to-Sky RCMP says officers received calls around 8:30 p.m. that a vehicle had hit a pedestrian and a baby in a stroller at a crosswalk near Pemberton and Second avenues in the downtown core.

“The vehicle fled the scene, and was located approximately two blocks away with the driver,” the RCMP told CityNews Tuesday.

“The baby stroller, with the baby inside, was lodged into the front of the vehicle and appeared to have been dragged from the collision.”

Mounties say the pedestrian and baby received non-life-threatening injuries, and are currently receiving medical help.

The driver was arrested at the scene, the RCMP adds.

Police are now urging anyone with information about the incident, including dashcam, or home security camera footage of the area, to contact police at 604-892-6100.
