Roosevelt Island Grandmother And Infant In Stroller Hit By SUV At Blackwell Turnaround - Taken To Hospital, Expected To Be Released Today

Received report this morning from a Roosevelt Island resident of an:

...accident at the traffic triangle just north of the Riverwalk buildings yesterday. I was walking by around 3 p.m. and there were several ambulances stationed there. A woman was being carried on a stretcher into one of the ambulances. And there was a stroller stuck under one of the wheels of the SUV that seemed to have been involved in the accident. I didn't see the child and was very worried.
Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Public Safety Department Chief Jack McManus confirmed that a collision occurred at the Blackwell Turnaround between a car service SUV and a grandmother walking with an infant in a stroller.
