Mounties are reminding drivers to watch out for pedestrians and other road users.

A mother and child are recovering after being struck in a crosswalk in Campbell River.

Constable Sara Clark says the mother was pushing the stroller across the street at 13th and Dogwood when the stroller was struck by a vehicle and knocked onto the side.

Clark says it was fortunate the mother and child were not more seriously injured. She says drivers need to pay attention for other road users.

Clark says we’re heading into a busy season with many people on the roads, including drivers and pedestrians, and it’s important everyone keeps an eye out and follows the rules of the road.
