BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) - Authorities in Bellevue say a 2-year-old girl in a stroller was killed when a sport-utility vehicle crashed with a smaller car and pushed it onto the sidewalk.

Police said the head-on crash happened Tuesday morning on 140th Avenue Northeast when the smaller car, a Nissan Sentra driven by a 43-year-old Bellevue man, turned left in front of an oncoming Dodge Durango driven by a 29-year-old Kirkland woman.

The SUV pushed the other car up onto the sidewalk, striking the stroller as well as the child’s 25-year-old mother.

The mother suffered minor injuries but the toddler was killed. Both drivers were taken to Overlake Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators said the drivers were cooperating with the investigation, and neither drugs nor alcohol was believed to be a factor in the crash.
