School Crossing Guard Receives Minor Injuries

TTPD

A 39-year-old driver accidentally struck a TISD Crossing guard on Summerhill. Thankfully only minor injuries. Please be careful driving in the mornings especially in the school zones. Slow down and let’s get where we are going safely.

A Texas High School crossing guard received minor injuries after being struck by a vehicle on Summerhill Road at about 8:15 this morning.

The 21-year-old crossing guard had stopped northbound traffic to let a GMC Yukon out of a business parking lot that is directly across the street from the high school. When the driver of the Yukon realized that traffic had stopped, he proceeded to turn left. Unfortunately, a tractor truck was now stopped in the outside lane in front of him so he didn’t see the crossing guard until he was right in front of him.

The crossing guard was taken to Christus St. Michael Hospital with what appeared to be only minor injuries. No citations were issued.
