Family of crossing guard killed in hit-and-run speaks after man charged

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The family of the Milwaukee crossing guard killed in a hit and run crash is speaking out. 

The family's response comes just one day after police announced the arrest of a man from the neighborhood where the crash happened. 

With a few days to go before Christmas, Andrew Tyler's daughter says it won't be the same without her dad.  

It's been over a month since the 71-year-old was hit and killed as he was walking to his post at Kluge Elementary School.

Terrence Harris, 35, was charged in the case Thursday and was arrested in California. While the family says it brings them a slight feeling of justice, there have been many more emotions since they got news of the arrest. 

"The last twenty four hours, for me personaly, I've been extremely angry," said Sharon Tyler, Andrew Tyler's daughter. "Having a face to the person who did this to my dad, and then wondering, why? And that he actually just left him there in the road."

Harris didn't have a driver's license at the time of the crash, so he is facing two charges, hit and run causing death and operating a vehicle while license revoked causing death.
