PORTAGE (WKZO)-- Citations could be issued or charges pursued this week after a car-pedestrian collision in Portage sent a toddler and her father to the hospital.

A 44-year-old Portage man was pulling his 3-year-old daughter in a little red wagon along the sidewalk in the 7800 block of Primrose Lane, enjoying the nice weather, when Portage Public Safety says a speeding car headed southbound couldn’t make the curve at Trial Ridge Avenue, left the roadway and struck the pair at 10:39 Sunday morning.

The father and daughter were taken to Bronson Methodist Emergency where they were treated and released.

The two occupants of the car were not hurt.

Police say excessive speed is suspected and they are looking for witnesses.
