Crossing Guard Struck By Vehicle In Jackson Heights

A 75-year-old school crossing guard suffered serious head injuries after a car hit her and knocked her to the ground at the corner of 34th Avenue and 82nd Street in Jackson Heights.

The woman, who's been a guard for seven years and lives on 81st Street was taken to Elmhurst Hospital.

The guard was near her post at P.S. 212 because school was dismissed early at 11:30 a.m. for parent teacher conferences.

The crash occurred within a city-imposed slow zone with a 20 mph speed limit that is meant to curb pedestrian injuries.

The minivan's driver remained on the scene and authorities do not suspect any criminality was involved in the crash.
