MIDLAND - A Midland crossing guard and student were hit by a van on Tuesday this morning.
The accident happened a little after eight at the corner of Bluebird and Whitaker.
The guard was helping a student cross the street, near Santa Rita Elementary, when a woman hit them.
According to police, she was turning onto Bluebird and the morning sun was right in her eyes, so she didn't see them.
The student, an eight year-old, wasn't hurt and went to class.
The crossing guard was treated and released from the hospital.
