A child and a babysitter were injured in a hit-and-run crash in Turlock while crossing the street with two other children Tuesday evening.
Turlock Police Officer Ron Reed said the child suffered a minor injury to the mouth, the babysitter sustained a head injury and the other two children were okay. The babysitter was conscious and alert while being taken to the hospital. EMS stayed with the children until parents arrived. Both suffered non-life threatening injuries.
The babysitter was walking in the crosswalk while pushing the three children in a stroller around 6 p.m. at Main Street and West Avenue when they were hit by a vehicle, Reed said. The vehicle drove away from the scene after the crash.
Reed said a witness, who saw the crash, followed the vehicle for about a mile, where Turlock police were then able to pull the driver over.
