It is with deep sympathy and sorrow that I offer my sincere condolences to the family of Andrew Tyler, the school crossing guard who was struck by a hit-and-run driver near Kluge Elementary School early last month. Mr. Tyler was doing his job and engaged in helping children when he was brutally, senselessly struck down and severely injured.

I feel great disappointment that the driver still has not done the right thing and turned him/herself in, but I also have faith that a suspect will be caught and brought to justice for Mr. Tyler’s death.

The Milwaukee Police Department is actively searching for the reckless driver responsible for Mr. Tyler’s death. The police are looking for a burgundy, 4-door, 1997-2001 Buick Park Avenue or LeSabre. I urge anyone with information to call Milwaukee Police at 414-935-7360 and bring justice in this tragic situation.
