Officials with the Nampa Police Department are reporting that an accident has occurred involving a vehicle, a pedestrian, and an infant.

The crash occurred on 16th Street and 6th Street at 2:53 p.m., when a woman pushing a stroller who was crossing the street was struck by a red minivan.

A 6-month-old was knocked out of the stroller following the impact.  

The woman was allegedly not in a crosswalk when the accident occurred, according to Nampa Sgt. Tim Riha.

The driver remained on scene and is cooperating with police.

Authorities say the woman and infant were transported to a local hospital, their conditions have not been released.
Residents say that traffic accidents in the area are not uncommon. 
"A lot of accidents happen right here on this corner, a lot.  It's a very busy street," said one resident. "It used to have a crosswalk right here and they took it out and they should put it back because a lot of people cross right here on a daily basis."
"I understand people are going to and from work and it's a busy lifestyle, but we just got to take the time to watch out for these people that are walking these streets," said another worried resident.
