Mother, baby taken to hospital after hit by car

TYLER (KYTX) - A woman and her 4-week-old baby have been taken to the hospital tonight after being hit by a car in Tyler.

Police say it happened just after 8 Saturday evening on Old Bullard Road near Chimney Rock when the woman crossed the street and was hit by a Mercedes.

Investigators say the woman is in serious condition and the baby was crying and breathing at the scene.

The driver was not injured.

Police say where the woman crossed the street does not have a crosswalk, and it is up to the person to pay attention to on-coming vehicles.

Police at the scene say the man did not show any signs of intoxication and will likely not face charges.

Old Bullard between Chimney Rock and Reick Road are blocked off as officers continue their investigation.
