Three people, including a toddler, were injured in Ridgewood Wednesday after a driver fleeing police struck them with his SUV.
The victims — a two-year-old girl, her 28-year-old mother, and a 35-year-old man — were hit by the driver of a 2021 Dodge Durango around 5 p.m. in the vicinity of Wyckoff Avenue and George Street, according to police.
The incident took place as the driver, a man who has yet to be identified, was evading arrest for having a suspended license. The driver had been pulled over by police and standing next to the SUV when he jumped back into the vehicle and sped off, police said.
