FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Police are crediting an 18-year-old central California man for saving his nephew’s life when he pushed the infant’s stroller out of the way of an oncoming SUV.

The Fresno Bee reports (http://bit.ly/1rh4qDg ) Manuel Ramos sustained head and face injuries and a broken leg when he was hit in a Fresno crosswalk Tuesday morning. He was dragged several feet. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment and is expected to survive.

His 9-month-old nephew was scraped and bruised.

Police say Ramos was pushing the baby carriage against a green light when he was hit by a speeding Chevrolet Blazer driven by a 43-year-old man. The driver also had a green light but police say Ramos had the right of way. Police cited the driver for failure to yield and for not carrying proof of insurance.
