Remembering a Clearwater crossing guard

Clearwater, Florida -- A year ago today, a Clearwater Crossing guard was hit and killed at Gulf to Bay and Belcher.

70-year-old Doug Carey had been on the force for about 20 years and was working as a school crossing guard.

Police say Carey was on the sidewalk at the corner of Belcher Road and Gulf to Bay Boulevard when a black Cadillac driven by Julious Johnson ran a red light and collided with a car that had the right-of-way to turn. The Cadillac spun out and struck Carey, killing him.

Today people gathered for a special dedication in honor of Carey's life.

The man driving the speeding car the killed Carey remains in jail.
