Maryland crossing guard credited with saving student
NORTH EAST, Md. (AP) — Officials say quick thinking by a Maryland police officer saved a middle school student from being hit by a car.
Cpl. Annette Goodyear of the North East Police Department was directing traffic on Friday at a crosswalk when the North East Middle School student entered the intersection.
The officer then realized that an approaching car was not going to be able to stop in time, and reacted quickly by pushing the student out of the way.
The officer herself was struck by the car.
The incident was caught on camera.
Goodyear was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and was later released.
