STRATFORD - Stratford police say a woman and her 1-year-old grandchild are recovering after being hit by an SUV on Thursday.

The driver immediately got of the vehicle and began rendering aid. Several witnesses also rushed to help the victims.

Neighbors say they weren't surprised by the crash because the area is congested and motorists try to speed through the light.

Police are not releasing the names of the victims or the driver. They say they are trying to determine who was at fault.

Both the woman and the baby are in stable condition at Bridgeport Hospital.
