Nampa police investigate a car-pedestrian crash on 6th Street South near 16th Avenue at mid-afternoon Wednesday.

The woman, who was crossing in the middle of the block, reportedly suffered minor injuries when she was hit by the side mirror of a minivan on 6th Street South just west of 16th Avenue shortly before 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nampa Police Sgt. Tim Riha said.

The 6-month-old girl fell out of the stroller after the impact and was taken to a local hospital to be checked out, Riha said.

"The baby seemed to be fine, but started crying when all the paramedics and firemen started poking and prodding and doing what they do," he said.

On Thursday, Riha confirmed the baby and the mother were deemed totally fine after the health check.

The 31-year-old woman pushing the stroller was not in a crosswalk, although one is located half a block away, Riha said. The driver reportedly remained on scene and cooperated with police.

The crash is still under investigation, and no decision has been made about whether a citation will be issued.
