Beacon Journal staff report
A 22-year-old Akron crossing guard was hit by an Akron school bus around 8 a.m. Thursday at Stoner Street and Noble Avenue on the city’s west side.
The crossing guard, Kiarra Prevo, was taken to Summa Akron City Hospital for a leg injury. Authorities had no further details on her condition.
Police cited bus driver Rhonda Corn, 47, for a pedestrian right-of-way violation.
Lt. Rick Edwards of the Akron Police Department said Corn was turning left from Stoner Street to Noble Avenue near Crouse elementary school when Prevo was struck after crossing a group of students.
Prevo was in the crosswalk, according to the police report.
No one else was injured, including the driver and the 20 students aboard the bus.
School officials are investigating.
“At this point we don’t have any more information,” said Debra Foulk, business affairs director for Akron schools. Foulk said a staff member was reviewing video footage of the incident.
