The public is leaving tokens of the appreciation and sympathy for Clearwater school crossing guard Doug Carey at the intersection of State Road 60 and Belcher Road, where he was killed Tuesday morning when he was struck by a car while on duty.
CLEARWATER – The community of Clearwater is reaching out to offer sympathy to family and friends of school crossing guard and former Clearwater police officer Doug Carey, who was killed when he was struck by a car the morning of May 20.

Clearwater police report that the public is leaving cards, letters, notes, flowers, balloons, and even coffee and donuts at the intersection of State Road 60 (Gulf to Bay) and Belcher where Carey was killed while at his post to help children cross the busy street.

Students paid their respects as they headed to classes Wednesday morning at nearby Oak Grove Middle School. A memorial is visible at Skycrest Elementary.

Police are encouraging the public to drop off their offerings at the police department’s main headquarters, 645 Pierce St. They promise to pass everything on to the family.

“He was a wonderful man and dedicated police officer and crossing guard who will be sorely missed by all. We will relay anything we get to his family,” Clearwater police said on the department’s Facebook page.

Julious Johnson, 28, of Clearwater is being held in the Pinellas County Jail on eight separate charges related to the crash that killed Carey and injured two children that were in Johnson’s car. The 2-year-old and 4-year-old girls are reportedly in stable conditions at All Children’s Hospital.
