A 5-month old infant who was struck by a truck at a Mesa intersection as his aunt pushed him across the street in a stroller, has died.

The child was struck about 2 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Longmore and Pueblo when a woman driving a truck made a left turn and hit the mother and baby, according to police.

The infant was ejected from the stroller after it was struck and overturned, police said. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. The boy’s aunt was injured, but is expected to recover, police said.

The driver of the truck was not impaired, and it wasn’t immediately known whether she would be cited.
