11-Month-Old Girl Survives When Van Crashes Into Her Baby Stroller After Hitting Train

Baltimore fire officials say an 11-month old girl received only minor injuries when a van that collided with a light rail train was sent spinning into her baby stroller.

Maryland Transit Administration spokeswoman Jawauna Greene says the van was being driven by a U.S. Naval Academy midshipman. Greene says the midshipman was the only occupant of the van and was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.

The baby girl was sent to the pediatric center at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

The accident happened about 6:20 a.m. at Howard and Lombard streets. Greene says the midshipman apparently went through a red light and the van was struck by the train. She says the van was the sent spinning to a sidewalk where a woman was pushing the baby stroller.
