ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – An infant being pushed in a stroller was killed and his father injured when a car struck the two in Arlington on Thursday morning.

According to witnesses, the father was pushing the boy in a stroller at the intersection of California and Cooper. Witnesses say that one car ran a red light, hitting a truck.

Police say the truck, which was headed southbound on Cooper, went off the road and struck the father and child.

“The dad was just screaming and the drivers were screaming,” says Alicia Hopkin, who witnessed the crash. “[The father] picked the baby up out of the road and brought it over, and somebody helped him lay him on the median. They were all just screaming.”

The boy was declared dead at the scene, his name has not been released. The father has been taken to a local hospital. The driver of one of the cars was also taken to the hospital.

Witnesses say the dad regularly walked his son in this area.

Southbound Cooper at Colorado will be shutdown most of the day while police investigate.
