Vehicle almost hits stroller with baby


Dara Piechowski-Seevers of Brainerd had a scare Monday when she was pushing her 9-month-old daughter in a stroller in the crosswalk at the intersection of North Eighth and Washington streets in Brainerd and a vehicle nearly hit the front of the stroller.

Piechowski-Seevers said her daughter is fine, but she’s upset that a motorist came close to hitting the stroller and drove away so fast, without knowing if the baby inside it was OK.
