MUSKEGON, Mich. — Police in western Michigan are trying to identify a driver who backed into a woman pushing a stroller with her child inside and dragged the stroller a short distance before fleeing.

Police released video of the stroller being hit and dragged by a minivan in the parking lot of a Muskegon store. They released images of the driver in the store.
