BOSTON (AP) — Police say a van involved in a crash jumped onto the sidewalk in a Boston neighborhood, struck and killed a 3-year-old boy in a stroller and injured his 4-year-old sister.
The woman pushing the stroller was unhurt.
Police say the van and a car collided on a South Boston street at about 3:15 p.m. Wednesday, and the van jumped the curb.
The street, which would have normally been lined with parked cars, was empty for a scheduled street cleaning.
Police Commissioner William Evans called the situation a ‘‘nightmare,’’ and said the young girl is expected to survive. It was unclear whether the woman pushing the stroller was the children’s mother or a caretaker.
Both drivers stayed at the scene, and no charges were announced.
No names have been released.
