On the same day that friends and classmates honored 17-year-old Kalen Kirk with a candlelight vigil, county officials discussed ways to prevent the tragedy in the future.
Kirk died Monday morning while crossing Clubhouse Road in Lakeland to get to his bus stop.
He was hit by the crossing guard supervisor in a marked Polk County Sheriff's Office unit.
Late Monday, a cross and flowers marked the spot near where Kirk attempted to cross the road.
Students and classmates planned to attend a vigil Tuesday night at the scene.
Polk County's Sidewalk Advisory Committee coincidentally met Tuesday night at the Combee Building in Bartow. One of the topics of conversation will be safety on Clubhouse Road.
Parents tell ABC Action News they have complained in the past about the need for more lighting and even a crosswalk for kids to get the bus stop safely.
