This morning, a Wyandotte County Unified Goverment employee was struck and killed by a vehicle near 54th & Leavenworth Road while-on duty as a crossing guard.  Eyewitness reports indicate the employee was struck while pushing children out of the way of an approaching vehicle.

“I offer my deepest sympathies to the family of the Crossing Guard, and I offer our gratitude on behalf of our residents for his selfless sacrifice in protecting our children,” says Mayor/CEO David Alvey.

Out of respect for the privacy of those impacted by this tragedy, the Unified Government is not releasing the employee’s name at this time.
