A quick-thinking truck driver saved a baby in a runaway stroller - and it was all caught on camera!

Jeff Blackburn was in Seattle's Queen Anne neighborhood Thursday when a stroller suddenly rolled into the street.

Blackburn said a woman apparently thought she had "parked and locked" the stroller, but while she was talking to a friend, the stroller rolled down the hill and into the intersection.

Blackburn used his truck to block traffic and ran to save the baby.

“I pulled my airbrake and jumped out of my truck as fast as I could to stop the stroller 'cause the stroller was either going to go down the hill or cut into the curb,” said Blackburn. “Luckily it cut into the curb.”

The baby was ok and Blackburn said the little guy was even giggling.

The woman, on the other hand, was so shaken up, she just grabbed the stroller and walked away without saying a word.
