PORTAGE, Mich. (WOOD) — A man and his 3-year-old daughter were hit by a car after it jumped a curb in Portage Sunday morning.

The crash happened around 10:40 a.m. in the 7800 block of Primrose Lane.

A southbound vehicle went off the roadway near a curve at Trail Ridge Avenue, according to a Sunday release from the Portage Department of Public Safety, and went over the curb onto the sidewalk.

The vehicle hit a 44-year-old Portage man and his 3-year-old daughter, who he was pulling in a wagon.

Father and daughter were treated at a local hospital and released Sunday.

The driver of the vehicle was not hurt.

The accident is still under investigation, but it appears “excessive” speed was a factor.
