A 3-year-old girl and her grandmother were struck by a vehicle while crossing a street in Ocean City on Thursday evening, according to police.

The toddler was being pushed in a stroller by her grandmother across Baltimore Avenue near 1st Street around 9:40 p.m. when they were struck by a truck, according to Lindsay Richard, Ocean City Police Department spokesperson.

Richard said two lanes of traffic had stopped as they crossed but the truck, in a third lane, had not.

Despite being thrown from the stroller upon the collision, the girl did not suffer serious injuries, Richard said.

She was airlifted to PRMC via the Maryland State Police Trooper 4 helicopter, and the grandmother was transported to the same hospital via an Ocean City EMS ambulance, Richard said.

“It looks as though they only suffered relatively minor scrapes and bruises,” Richard said.

The driver of the truck was at fault and cited, Richard said, who added that drugs or alcohol were not a factor.
