Suspected drunk driver pins baby in stroller against glass wall
An 11-month-old baby and 7-year-old boy escaped relatively unscathed Saturday evening after a suspected drunk driver careened onto a Glendale sidewalk in the direction of pedestrians, police said.
The children were with two adults at the time of the incident when a black Camaro jumped a curb near Brand Boulevard and Maple Street after hitting a parked car around 10:30 p.m, the Glendale Police Department said. The 7-year-old and an adult were able to jump out of the way, police said, but the Camaro pinned a stroller carrying the baby against a glass wall.
Sgt. Dan Suttles, a spokesman for the department, said the baby was uninjured.
“Just the way the stroller was pushed up against the window and stopped there … they got very lucky, to tell you the truth,” he said.
The 7-year-old and the two adults suffered minor injuries.
The Camaro was involved in another collision earlier that night when it struck a vehicle near Brand Boulevard and Harvard Street, according to Suttles. The driver of the Camaro fled the scene, Suttles said.
