HALIFAX - A 17-year-old girl pushing a seven-month old baby in a stroller was struck by a vehicle after police say she crossed against the light in a Halifax-area intersection on Monday night.

The accident happened in a marked crosswalk at 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Lacewood Drive and Willett Street in Clayton Park.

Halifax Regional Police Sgt. Greg Robertson said the light was red at the intersection when the teen crossed, but luckily, she wasn’t seriously hurt, or the baby.

“Both are at their respective hospitals with minor injuries,” Robertson said.

“The vehicle had the right of way here.”

Robertson said police are continuing to investigate and say they haven’t ruled out charges against the 17-year-old.
