UPDATE, 10:50 p.m. | Seattle Police say both a mother and a baby in a stroller were hit tonight when a suspected drug dealer, who had moments before escaped arrest during a police operation, ran to a waiting car that took off driving erratically.
Police say the vehicle ran a red light and a stop sign and clipped a parked car near Sixth Avenue and Denny Way. The car then continued onto the sidewalk where it hit the woman and baby. At that point, police say, the suspect fled on foot.
The mother and baby were taken to Harborview Medical Center with minor injuries, police say. Police ask anybody with information to call 911.
