ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A woman and her 3-year-old child were struck by a car while trying to cross a road in Annapolis.

Police said the 34-year-old woman was carrying her child as they tried to cross Bay Ridge Avenue, south/southeast of Bens Drive, across from the Shell Station, when they were struck shortly before 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, Annapolis Police said. The street has no crosswalk at this location.

The driver who struck the woman and child remained on the scene, police said. The woman was able to walk away from being struck and called police. She and her child were taken to an area hospital for treatment of their injuries.

Police said the speed limit on that stretch of road is 30 miles per hour, but they could not say if speed was a factor. Police are trying to obtain video footage from area business as they investigate the incident. Alcohol does not seem to be a contributing factor.
