Spartanburg, SC (AP) - Authorities say a crossing guard has died eight days after she was struck while directing traffic outside an elementary school.
Investigators say they still haven't found the car or driver who hit 73-year-old Emma Taylor around 7:15 a.m. Oct. 30 outside Jesse Boyd Elementary School in Spartanburg County.
Coroner Rusty Clevenger said in a statement that Taylor died at the hospital Wednesday evening.
The Highway Patrol says they know the vehicle that hit Taylor was dark-colored, but have found out few other details.
Spartanburg District 7 officials say no children were hurt, but some did see Taylor get struck. She had been working as a crossing guard for a decade and received an award as South Carolina Outstanding Crossing Guard of the Year several years ago.
