BRANFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Branford Police are investigating an incident of a mother struck by a car while pushing her son in a stroller.

Branford Police and fire departments responded to a call on Monday over a woman and her child being struck by a vehicle on East Main Street.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found the 42-year-old mother Rina Corsi and her one year old son lying in the roadway by the 1-95 underpass near the exit 55 off ramp.

Witnesses say that Corsi was pushing her son in a stroller, with another child walking at her side. They say Corsi was hit when she had to push the carriage into the travel portion of the road to avoid debris.

Corsi and her one year old son were treated at the scene by Branford Fire Department Paramedics. They were later transported to a local medical facility for serious but non-life threatening injuries. The second child was not hurt.

Police say the person in the vehicle that hit Corsi and her son was Lynn Delgiudice of North Branford.

The incident is still under investigation, and no arrests have been made.
