Lorena Rayos of Tornillo suffered burns to her arm, and a baby, Selene Camacho, suffered a cut to her face.
Armando Camacho, the grandson of the woman who died said he heard someone scream and he started running towards the commotion.
Camacho went on to say, "When I got there, I just saw my aunt picking up the little baby from behind my grandma's And I just saw my grandma laying down right there and she had a big cut on her leg."
Camacho says his grandmother's funeral is set for Wednesday.
The driver of the buggy is a 47-year-old man from Fort Hancock. Investigators are not identifying as of now.
