The Journal Gazette reports the guard suffered trauma to his legs and head. Crossing Guard Supervisor Linda York says his head trauma caused memory loss and he “has a long recovery.”

The guard was released from the hospital Wednesday.

The driver of the bus that struck the crossing guard told police he didn’t see the guard as he was in a blind spot.
