Mother and son struck on sidewalk in Rochester
ROCHESTER – A mother and her year-old baby were transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries after being struck by a vehicle along Union Street on a rainy Friday evening.
Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded to Union Street around 7:09 p.m. after a 2004 Saab 9-5, driven by Elizabeth Keyes, 56, of Rochester, allegedly struck Britny Adjutant, 22, who was pushing a stroller with the young boy.
Following a preliminary investigation, police determine Keyes was exiting a business on Union Street, which is a one-way road in the downtown, in the Saab while Adjutant and the boy were walking on a sidewalk.
Paramedics transported both Adjutant and the boy to Frisbie Memorial Hospital as a precaution, according to police.
Police continue to investigate the matter, including whether the rainy conditions may have contributed to the accident.
“The Rochester Police Department encourages all drivers to be alert and aware of pedestrians anytime they are in a motor vehicle and to obey all traffic laws,” Sgt. Patrick Emerson wrote in the release.
