Dramatic video shows car striking baby stroller at Montreal intersection

Montreal police say they are investigating after a car was seen hitting an infant in a stroller and dragging it, in a hit and run last week in Outremont.

The dramatic incident captured on surveillance footage shows a black car rolling through the intersection of Bloomfield and Lajoie avenues while a woman pushes a baby carriage. The car, without stopping, slams into the stroller snatching it out of the woman’s hands and continues to drive off heading in the direction of Van Horne Avenue.

The one-year-old in the stroller was not injured in the incident.

A video was posted by Twitter user Sarah Dorner, who said in the tweet she was “feeling shaken” after witnessing the hit and run.

Police were called to the scene but according to SPVM spokesperson Raphaël Bergeron, when they arrived, the child was already sent to hospital.

Bergeron says police currently have no suspects in the incident.
