Police charge driver in collision with crossing guard

Police have charged a driver after a vehicle struck a crossing guard collision that occurred this morning in Halifax.

At approximately 8:45 a.m. a vehicle traveling west bound struck a crossing guard who was assisting several pedestrians to cross Radcliffe Drive. The 74-year-old male crossing guard was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver, a 24-year-old-Halifax man, was charged under the Motor Vehicle Act for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a cross walk and for driving while his view was obstructed. He is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court at a later date.

Police remind motorists to use extra caution around crosswalks during the school day obey crossing guards and stop a minimum of 5 meters from crosswalk when crossing guards are displaying their stop signs.
