Fire officials say a woman and a toddler were injured during a hike on Piestewa Peak late Tuesday morning.

Crews were called to the scene before noon after a woman fell and injured her ankle. The woman reportedly had a 3-year-old girl with her at the time in a backpack carrier, who also suffered head trauma during the fall.
