The person who hit a crossing guard in Morristown has now been arrested. The Morristown Polcie Department says that 69 year old Carolyn King was stopping traffic in front of the Witt Elementary School on US 25E. That school is about one mile north Interstate 81. She stated that a white pickup truck began edging toward her traveling southbound on 25E. She gave hand signals for the driver of the truck to stop but he continued to move towards her until his vehicle was actually touching her legs with the bumer.
