ROOSEVELT—Susan Knorr, a 70-year-old school cross walk guard, was hit and thrown several feet this morning near Kings Peak Elementary School.
According to the Roosevelt City Police Department, the driver of the 1997 Mazda Sedan was a 16-year-old who “failed to yield.” Knorr sustained serious head and leg injuries. The child Knorr was escorting across the street at the time of the impact was not injured.
Roosevelt City Police are investigating and have said, “The crossing lights were functioning and Knorr was equipped with a handheld stop sign, cones and emergency colored outerwear. The early morning sun may have been a factor in the accident.”
