struck.

During the investigation witnesses reported it appeared that the child darted away from her mother and ran into an oncoming truck. The child’s mother ran towards the vehicle in effort to grab her child and was also struck by the vehicle, knocking her to the ground. The mother complained of pain to her back and neck. She was transported to Mercy Hospital.  The child was flown to Fresno Regional Hospital.
