A school crossing guard was hit this morning near Hunter Middle School in Ooltewah but the extent of her injuries is not known, authorities said.

About 6:45 a.m., Elizabeth Drew was hit at her crossing post by a vehicle pulling from Teal Road onto Hunter Road, said Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Janice Atkinson.

She was taken to a local hospital, Atkinson said, but her condition is not yet known.

Drew was wearing all safety equipment required for crossing guards, Atkinson said.
