ENID, Okla. (KFOR) – A man is in custody after allegedly hitting and severely injuring a crossing guard outside an Enid elementary school Wednesday afternoon.
According to the police report, 61-year-old Daniel Luskey was walking into the crosswalk with his stop sign near Glenwood Elementary just before 3 p.m. Wednesday, when he was struck by a Ford F-250 and hit his head on the pavement.
Witnesses say the truck was turning right onto Chestnut Ave. when the collision occurred. When Luskey saw the truck was going to hit him, he put his hands on the hood in an attempt to stop it.
The driver, 49-year-old Roberto Cruz Lopez, told officers he did not see Luskey because the sun was in his eyes and he didn’t think Luskey was in the crosswalk.
One of the officers recognized Lopez from a traffic stop in late September, where he was cited for speeding and driving without a valid license. His vehicle was also towed for driving without insurance.
