The crossing guard risked his life to save the girl when the car headed straight for them

Parents whose children attend North East Middle School in North East Township, Maryland, can have some peace of mind knowing their child is in good shape following a rescue that took place last week.

On Friday, one guard crossing was helping a student cross the street when a car headed straight for them, not slowing down until it hit the guard crossing the street, who to push girl out of harm way.

Northeastern Police Department Cpl. Annette Goodyear has been a crosswalker for 14 years, but never has she experienced years like this.

She was right in front of North East Middle School when the accident happened, and the whole incident was captured on video.

“It was strange,” said Goodyear WTTG-TV when she remembered the incident. “As I was lying there and me, I was thinking to myself – this really happened. I didn’t even know what else to think about it at the time. It just doesn’t seem real as it’s happening.”

Cecil County Administrator Danielle Hornberger shared the video on Facebook Friday, saying, “Gratitude and prayers go to Corporal Annette Goodyear from the Northeast Police Department for her heroism in saving lives. this NEMS member this morning.”

Goodyear was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries. She could have been much more seriously injured by the car, but luckily she wasn’t.

And after getting out of the hospital, her first thought was about the girl she protected and how she was. She heard the girl had come home from the tremors, so Goodyear stopped by the house to check on her.

“She came down the stairs, she saw me standing there and when she was walking towards the door, you know, she had tears in her eyes, and you could see that and when she started to weep. tears, her father began to cry. tearful, so, you know, we all started at that point,” said Goodyear.

“I’m so grateful she stood there and she’s okay.”

The Cecil County Sheriff’s Office told WTTG that driver received four warnings, including one for negligent driving and one for not stopping at a yield sign before crossing the crosswalk.

Goodyear’s fearless act was recognized near and far when the video went viral online.

“It was a great act of heroism,” Hornberger told WTTG.

“We are extremely proud of her actions,” said Cpl. John Fakner with the Northeast Police Department told WJZ-TV. “It was a snap response that saved a child from potential trauma. Job well done.”

Goodyear said she’s just happy that her daughter is doing well and keeping everyone safe is her main goal.
