Update: Sentencing and Restitution for Woman Who Hit Crosswalk Attendant Continued

By  | 

The woman who hit a 54-year-old crosswalk attendant was in Hall County Court for her sentencing and restitution Friday morning. However, due to the crosswalk attendant's ongoing medical issues, the sentencing was continued.

Prosecutors said in court, Sharon Guzinski, the crosswalk attendant is still having medical issues and wanted to wait until they are resolved to have a proper restitution.

Sandra Angeles-Sandate, the woman who hit Guzinski at 7:45 am on August 15 at Walnut Middle School, was in court without an attorney, but used an interpreter.

Judge Wetzel has rescheduled Angeles-Sandate's sentencing and restitution for January 9 at 9:30 am.

Grand Island Police say Guzinski was stationary in the middle of the crosswalk with a bright yellow vest on and a stop sign in her hand when she was hit by a car coming out of the parking lot. Angeles-Sandate did not yield to the pedestrians and Guzinski. Angeles-Sandate was arrested at the scene for careless driving and not having a driver’s license, which expired in 2010.

There were several witnesses who saw the incident. No kids were injured.

Guzinski was taken to St. Francis Medical Center for injuries to her left elbow and arm and was released.
