We are closely watching the aftermath of a serious Tempe pedestrian accident that injured four people including a mother and her child on September 5, according to reports from ABC 15. The crash occurred around 6 a.m. when a car traveling down Guadalupe Road and All American Way hit another car, causing it to crash into a baby in a stroller being pushed by the mother and father. The man suffered non-life threatening injuries. The mother and baby suffered severe injuries and doctors are working around the clock to save the lives of the two.
The driver of the car that was hit sustained non-life threatening injuries. Police determined that the driver who caused the collision was not impaired at the time of the accident, but investigators have not yet determined how fast he was going at the time the crash occurred. We are deeply concerned for the mother and baby and hope that they will both make a complete recovery.

More than 10 percent of pedestrian crashes result in fatalities and just shy of 80 percent of these collisions are reported to cause moderate to serious, and even life-threatening, injuries.
