On Wednesday May 4, a 7 week old baby girl was hit by an SUV and critically injured. The accident occurred at the intersection of Aramingo Avenue and Westmoreland Street in the Port Richmond Section of Philadelphia.
According to reports of the accident, the SUV driver ran a red light and hit the baby carriage in which the infant was riding. The baby was thrown from the stroller and taken to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children with head injuries.
The driver of the SUV was arrested for drunk driving. He reportedly has been arrested three previous times for DUI and has been arrested several times for driving with a revoked license.
We extend our best wishes to this infant girl, and to her family, for a quick and complete recovery following this Philadelphia drunk driving accident.
