KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A crossing guard who died after being hit by a vehicle in Kansas City, Kansas, saved the lives of two children before the impact, a school principal said.
The guard was struck early Tuesday near Christ the King Parish School in Kansas City, Kansas, and died later at a hospital. His name wasn’t immediately released pending notification of family members. No children were injured, police spokesman Jonathon Westbrook said.
Christ the King principal Cathy Fithian said two students were getting ready to cross the street when the guard yelled at them to stop, preventing them from being in the car’s path, The Kansas City Star reported.
