— A mother and her 18-month-old daughter were hospitalized Monday night after being struck by a car as they crossed a Raleigh street, police said.

Police said Seville Suzette Keeton, 21, was pushing the baby, Harmony Haley, in a stroller and was crossing Green Road at the Calvary Drive intersection at about 6 p.m. when they were hit by a 1998 Honda driven by Maria Alejandra Sanchezpenaloza.

The police report indicated that Sanchezpenaloza had the green light and was unable to brake in time to avoid hitting the mother and daughter. Police said they don't expect to file charges in the case.

Keeton was listed in fair condition at WakeMed Tuesday morning. Her daughter was transferred to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, where she was listed in critical condition.
