Unified Government Responds to Tragedy
 
The Unified Government is deeply saddened to report a public servant employed by the city was struck and killed by a vehicle near 54th & Leavenworth Road while on-duty as a Crossing Guard this morning.  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.
 
Unified Government staff extends their heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the employee’s family, friends, and all those affected by this tragedy.
 
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.
