A driver knocked a Langley toddler sprawling on Wednesday, hitting the child’s wagon as he crossed a local road with his grandmother.
The incident took place at about 7:40 p.m. at the corner of 197B Street and 73A Avenue, said Const. Craig Van Herk of the Langley RCMP.
The driver, a 21-year-old woman from Coquitlam, was rounding the corner from 73A onto 197B, and took the turn too sharply, police say.
The grandmother and grandson were crossing the road at the time.
The car hit the wagon and knocked the boy out. He was taken by ambulance to hospital and held overnight for observation, but was not seriously injured.
“He should be fine,” said Van Herk.
The driver was not drunk or speeding, Van Herk said.
“She was, however, issued violation tickets for failing to yield to pedestrians, and turning left to the left of centre,” he said.
She essentially cut the corner too tightly and cut across too much of the road.
