A 30-year-old man suffered a serious head injury and his 7-month-old baby was knocked unconscious when they were struck in a crosswalk by an SUV in Point Loma, police said.

The man was pushing his infant in a stroller across Catalina Boulevard at Canon Street when they were struck just before 6:30 a.m., Monday, according to San Diego Police Officer Humberto Hernandez.

Paramedics took the man to Sharp Hospital and the baby to Rady Children’s Hospital, Hernandez said, adding that the infant was breathing but unconscious.

The driver, a 47-year-old man in a Chevy Suburban, stopped at the scene and rendered aid to the family, SDPD Officer Dan Lasher said.

The baby’s mother was walking in front of the stroller and was not hurt, Lasher said.
