Police drop citation of Ariz. driver who ran over child, mom
Spokesman: Pedestrians "so close that it was difficult for the driver to yield"
The Arizona Republic
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The citation issued to the driver of a sports utility vehicle that ran over a 4-year-old child in a stroller last week in Scottsdale has been dismissed, police said Thursday.
As part of the investigation, officers viewed the May 9 video from the red-light enforcement camera at the intersection at 90th Street and Shea Boulevard, police said.
Officers were called to the intersection about 1 p.m. after a black GMC SUV struck the woman and child as they were crossing Shea from north to south in the crosswalk, police said. While they were in the crosswalk, the traffic signal changed to green for the eastbound vehicle, police said. The SUV rolled over the stroller and child, but the child was not seriously injured. The mother also was not injured.
