A woman pushing her baby in a stroller was seriously injured Saturday when a car hit them on a sidewalk in Otay Mesa West.

The 22-year-old woman was pushing a stroller holding her four-month- old son on the sidewalk at 3600 Palm Ave. at 11:45 a.m. Saturday. The driver of a Toyota Corolla lost control of his car and struck the sidewalk, according to officials with the San Diego Police Department.

The car allegedly continued eastbound through the Grissom Street intersection and struck the woman and the stroller. The baby was not injured, but the woman suffered leg injuries requiring surgery, police said.

The driver complained of pain to his right hand. Traffic Division officers are investigating the accident.
