MUSC officials said Thursday morning that the crossing guard who was struck by a truck driven by a 16-year-old girl is still listed in critical condition.

Authorities say the 35-year-old crossing guard was hit by a Chevy pickup in front of Sangaree Elementary School on Wednesday and was transported to MUSC.

Officials with the South Carolina Highway Patrol say they cited the 16-year-old pickup driver for disobeying the crossing guard she struck on Royle Road just before 8 a.m.

The teen is charged with disobeying a school guard directing traffic, an offense which calls for a $225 fine and a deduction of four points.
