Earlier this week, an elderly crossing guard in Kansas, known by those in his community as “Mr. Bob,” age 88, was killed by a speeding vehicle while on duty, though he was able to save two children before being struck. On Tuesday morning, Bob Nill was hit by a black sedan, just as he managed to usher two young boys off the road. The driver of the sedan, who fortunately stayed at the scene of the accident
, had already hurried through flashing yellow lights, but did not appear to notice the stop sign that the guard was rushing to hold up.
