Rochester N.Y. – A Rochester woman and her 10-month-old daughter are doing much better Monday after narrowly avoiding a two car collision at the intersection of Chili Avenue and Somerset Street late Sunday afternoon.
Shatiqua Session was walking her daughter, KaNijah Bradley, in a stroller near the intersection, when police say one car turned in front of the other, forcing one vehicle to hit the sidewalk and the stroller.
“I seen the accident coming,” said Shatiqua Session. “I tried to back up real fast, but it was too late.”
According to Session, one of the cars hit the stroller, folding it with KaNijah inside.
“That's when nurses came across the street,” said Session, “to check her pulse, to make sure she was fine.”
“I just ran over there because I wanted to make sure the baby was okay,” said Lori Buchin, a registered nurse who witnessed the accident.
“I took off the baby’s shoes, and assessed the baby,” said Buchin.
“I say God is good,” said KaNijah’s grandmother, Lisa Session. “I'm just glad everyone's okay and they're home.”
According to police both drivers were questioned at the scene, no charges have been filed against them.
