A mother and her 1-year-old son were struck by a vehicle under an overpass in Branford.

Police said Rina Corsi, 42, was pushing her son, Jackson Chancio, in a stroller while walking with another child along East Main Street on Monday.

Beforehand, they said she moved the stroller into the travel portion of the road under an Interstate 95 overpass to avoid some debris. That's when she was struck.

Police said they found Corsi laying in the roadway.

Witnesses told police that they saw Corsi pushing the child in the stroller into the road to avoid the debris.

The driver behind the wheel was identified as 74-year-old Lynn Delgiudice of North Branford. She was traveling southbound at the time, police said.

Corsi and Jackson were treated by paramedics for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The second child was not hurt.

No arrests have been made.

Police said they are continuing to investigate.
