Caught on tape - an SUV runs over a mother and child at a Scottsdale Arizona intersection - and miraculously no one was hurt.

A mother was pushing her daughter in a stroller at the intersection of 90th Street and Shea Boulevard on May 9.

While they were crossing, the traffic signal changed to green for oncoming traffic. What happened next was both frightening, and a miracle.

Surveillance video shows the mother hurrying up. An SUV began to move on the green light at the same time the mother and child emerged into the SUV's path. The SUV rolled right over the child and stroller without seriously injuring the child.

Police said the SUV driver appeared to have had her view obscured by another large vehicle.

Both mom and daughter are OK and only have a few cuts and scrapes from the road, however both are now nervous around the roadways.

Originally, Scottsdale police cited the SUV driver for not stopping for a pedestrian in the crosswalk, but after they dismissed the charge after viewing the video.
