Two Katy toddlers and their nanny are recovering after being struck by a vehicle outside a Katy neighborhood over the weekend. Authorities believe the nanny pushed the wagon the toddlers were riding in out of the way avoiding a direct impact with the vehicle.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez broke the news Saturday, March 30, 2024 as he was in route to the scene at the 20900 block of Imperial Landing in Katy’s Bridgewater Meadows community near 99 and Clay Road.




 

A Katy Nanny and Two Toddlers were Struck by a Vehicle

“A female was crossing the street with both toddlers in tow, in a small wagon, when a vehicle struck all three,” said Sheriff Gonzalez on social media.

 

He later shared that the female nanny was transported to the hospital by ambulance with an injured hip while the toddlers were sent by LifeFlight to a Katy hospital with critical injuries. The toddlers were a 3-year-old male and 2-year-old female. They both received severe lacerations when their wagon was destroyed by the vehicle.

 

As of Sunday night, Sherriff Gonzalez reported that all were in stable condition and would be alright.

 

The driver (42) reportedly stayed at the scene as was not found to be impaired, but according to Sheriff Gonzalez, she was driving over 30 mph at the time of the incident.

 

“The main line of investigations at this time is determining if the driver’s speed constituted a criminal offense or a traffic violation, and to what degree the adult pedestrian contributed to the crash,” says Sheriff Gonzalez.




Authorities did say that they believed the nanny pushed the wagon out of the line of direct impact at the last moment. This may have limited to the injuries that the toddlers received.

 

The crash remains under investigation by the Harris County Sherriff’s Office Vehicular Crimes Division.
