BRIDGEPORT — “When you see me in the middle of the road, then you cross!” Marisol Nieves shouted to a young boy waiting to cross North and Lexington avenues after school Tuesday afternoon.
Nieves, a crossing guard who worked Tuesday morning and afternoon, said she told a city cop that morning it was going to be a dangerous day after she witnessed an accident near the intersection of North and Lexington avenues.
Shortly after, at the intersection of Park and North avenues near the Geraldine Johnson Elementary School, two crossing guards were hit by a car as they worked around 8:10 a.m. Tuesday, police spokesman Av Harris said.
“Almost right after he left, they were hit,” Nieves said.
