MESA, Ariz.(AP) - An elderly woman driving a truck hit a pregnant woman walking with her 5-month old baby in a Mesa crosswalk, leaving the infant in extremely critical condition.

Mesa police said Friday that the mother and her baby were hit around 2 p.m. Thursday by the truck as it was making a left-hand turn.

The collision overturned the stroller that the baby was in, ejecting the infant.

The baby is in extremely critical condition.

The woman was knocked to the ground but declined medical treatment.

Police determined that the elderly woman driving the truck wasn't impaired but say that the investigation is ongoing.
