Volunteer crossing guard dies saving kids from car

LAFAYETTE, CA (AP) — A volunteer crossing guard at a middle school in the San Francisco Bay Area pushed children from the path of a vehicle that ended up striking and killing him.

Ashley Dias is being hailed as a hero after he saved a group of children leaving Stanley Middle School in Lafayette from an SUV Wednesday.

Lafayette police say a child sustained minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital as a precautionary measure.

KGO-TV reports the driver of the SUV is the grandmother of a Stanley student who was in the car during the crash.

Officials say the driver has been interviewed and is cooperative.
