- Even the most conscientious among us, intimately familiar with the dangers
of motoring, becomes, once behind the wheel, another feckless menace to
life and limb:
Crossing Guard Runs Down Crossing Guard
A crossing guard was killed in front of a high school by another crossing
guard on his way to work, Park Ridge police said.
Estelle Reynolds, 81, died after being struck in a crosswalk by a vehicle
driven by Marvin Hodgdon, 70. He was on his way to his crossing guard job
in nearby Hillsdale.
Hodgdon said he didn't see Reynolds, who was wearing high-visibility safety
gear, police Chief Richard Oppenheimer said.
No criminal charges were filed.
