Last updated 10/7/2015 at 1:48pm

A mother and her 8-month-old baby were hit by a car yesterday in Coachella. The mother was pushing her baby in a stroller trying to cross the road on a marked crosswalk at about 7:17 p.m. The baby was knocked from the stroller and suffered minor injuries after being protected by a car seat. The mother sustained moderate injuries and was taken to the hospital. The driver, a 41-year-old male, was arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence. The accident occurred at the intersection of Avenue 52 and Douma Street. Both streets were closed so the police could assess the scene.
