SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

A 4-month-old is expected to make a full recovery after his stroller was hit by a car in Sylvester.

Officials responded to the incident at 5:04 p.m. Wednesday.

Pamela Norris was crossing Hwy 82 in front of the Walmart, pushing her child in a stroller, when Shirley Drayton struck the stroller.

Norris suffered only minor injuries, but the child was airlifted to Macon.  

Sgt. Doug Brooks said the car rolled over the stroller and backed off but didn't crush it.

Sylvester Police said that the amount of foot traffic around the Walmart is dangerous.

"Since the Walmart store moved in, we have a lot of people crossing the street. We have an apartment complex that is across the street from the Walmart, just a bit down, and people with cross the street just to get to the other side," said Lieutenant Kenneth Washington with the Sylvester Police Department.

Washington urges pedestrians and drivers to be extra cautious in the area. 

There will be no charges filed against the driver.
