Dangerous crosswalk: Provo Peaks parents fight for an upgrade

ROOSEVELT, Utah (ABC4 News) – A crossing guard was hit by a 16-year-old driver as she walked a child across the street in Roosevelt Thursday morning.

According to a post on the Roosevelt City Police Department Facebook, the 70-year-old woman was escorting a child across 300 West 200 North when she was hit.
