Baby hit by tradie's van in driveway

A BABY boy remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital after he was hit by a reversing trademan's van in Midland.

Witnesses say the 10-month-old boy was struck by the van around 1pm on Thursday in his family's driveway on Margaret Street.

The van went over the boy, who was rushed to St John of God Hospital Midland with serious injuries.

He was then transferred to Princess Margaret Hospital.

Police say the boy has fractures to his arm and face but his injuries are not life-threatening and he is in a stable condition.

"The scene is quite stressful and it really does, I guess, bring home to all parents and drivers that we have to be really careful, especially when there's children around," sergeant Dwayne Skehan said.

Major Crash are investigating at the scene, where a small amount of blood remains on the ground.

Neighbours say the boy's parents had moved into the property this week.
