Julious Johnson, 28, was speeding in his Cadillac when he collided with another vehicle which struck the 70-year-old crossing guard. Police added to The Global Dispatch that Johnson fled the scene, passing off one of his daughters (the injured 4-year-old) “to a bystander” and fled on foot.

Johnson returned to the car, retrieve some items and fled again, the source added. He was caught a short time later and now faces several charges including aggravated child neglect, leaving the scene, driving with a suspended license, resisting arrest, a red light violation, possession of marijuana and possibly vehicular manslaughter.

Police say Johnson has been arrested 17 times before.

Carey, a former police officer with the Clearwater Police Department, retired in 1987 after nearly 19 years with the department.

“Here’s a guy who spent 20 years to dedicated service. He comes back to help these kids cross this intersection, and he gets killed because some guy ran a red light,” said Clearwater police Chief Tony Holloway. “We handle these (crashes) every day, but when it’s one of your own, it hits you a little bit harder.”

“He comes back to work to help kids cross the intersection and gets killed because some guy ran a red light,” Holloway added.
