Harrisburg Accident Attorney Reports One-Year-Old Injured in Chambersburg Wreck

Posted Scott B. Cooper on Jul 11, 2012 in General

June 14, 2012 – The Chambersburg Public Opinion is reporting that a 1-year-old girl was flown to a hospital Wednesday June 13, 2012 after being hit by a sport-utility vehicle while being pushed across a Chambersburg intersection in a stroller.  Chambersburg Police said the child was extricated from underneath the Chevrolet Blazer by rescuers with Franklin Fire Company.  She was taken by ambulance to Chambersburg Hospital, then by helicopter to Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey.

The severity of the child’s injuries was not immediately known, according to a police statement released shortly before 7 p.m.

Crews were called about 5:15 p.m. Wednesday to Cedar and West Queen streets, near CVS pharmacy.

Police said Joan Brown, no age provided, 323 Warm Spring Road, Chambersburg, was driving the 1997 Chevrolet Blazer that struck the girl’s stroller, then dragged it about two car lengths from the point of impact.

The police statement did not indicate whether Brown faces charges in connection with the crash, and made no mention of the person who was pushing the child’s stroller.
