Alderman Johnson shares GoFundMe page for crossing guard hit by reckless driver
Statement of Alderman Cavalier Johnson - November 14, 2017
I wanted to express my gratitude for the outpouring of support for Andrew Tyler, the 71-year-old crossing guard struck by a vehicle in a hit-and-run late last week. I received a number of inquiries from concerned citizens from across Milwaukee County seeking to help Mr. Tyler and his family in their time of need. Tragically, Mr. Tyler remains in critical condition and yesterday experienced kidney failure, resulting in the amputation of his left leg. He was simply working to protect our children and keep them safe during their walk to school.
Since retiring from Delphi Automotive, Mr. Tyler served as a school crossing guard through the Milwaukee Police Department for more than nine years. His four daughters and many grandchildren love him dearly, and genuinely appreciate the support of the community. If you are interested in assisting Mr. Andrew Tyler and his family, please consider offsetting their medical costs through their GoFundMe page. The details are below:
Additionally, the Milwaukee Police Department is still searching for the reckless driver responsible for Mr. Tyler’s accident. The police are looking for a burgundy, 4-door, 1997-2001 Buick Park Avenue or LeSabre. I urge anyone with information to call Milwaukee Police at 414-935-7360 and bring justice in this tragic situation.
