Mum hit by car while pushing pram across busy road
A MOTHER was hit by a car while pushing her baby boy in a pram across Nicklin Way.
Luckily for the 18-month-old boy the woman was able to push the pram to a centre island before taking the impact herself.
She was struck about 80m from a designated crossing at the intersection of Palkana Dr about 6.30pm Wednesday.
Sunshine Coast police district duty officer Senior Sergeant Scott Wiggins said the boy suffered only a minor injury to his head when he fell from the pram.
The woman's injuries were described as non-life threatening.
The female driver of the car was checked over by a paramedic before going with police to be interviewed.
"It makes no sense that a pedestrian would cross in this location of the road at such a peak time of heavy traffic," Snr Sgt Wiggins said.
"We urge all pedestrians to use the designated crossings."
