A school crossing guard in Nashville was injured in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident on Monday morning. The crossing guard was struck near an Antioch elementary school while children were walking to school. According to authorities, the crossing guard only suffered minor injuries. Police say the hit-and-run pedestrian accident occurred at the intersection of Richards Road and Dowdy Drive, just outside the J.E. Moss Elementary School. Authorities say the man injured his knee and was taken to the hospital. Witnesses told police it was a red sedan, possibly a Chevrolet Aveo, driven by an Asian male with black hair. Police are looking for the suspect and say his car may be missing the passenger side mirror that was tore off when he struck the crossing guard. The accident is still under investigation, and anyone with information can call anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
