A baby stroller could be seen between two vehicles at the scene according to WBZ NewsRadio1030's Carl Stevens.
Boston Police Commissioner Bill Evans says that the cause of the crash remains under investigation and that no one left the scene. He called it a tragedy pointing out because it was a street sweeping day, there were no parked cars along the sidewalk that could have acted as a barrier.
Susan Dublin who lives in the neighborhood, witnessed the crash and says she will never forget what she saw. "Just seeing a child on the sidewalk, was just...devastating for everybody to know that could happen when going out for a walk," she said.
