HEMPSTEAD - A Long Island family has been calling for increased safety at school crossings ever since their 5-year-old daughter was hit by a car and confined to a wheelchair.Mildred Curry's life was turned upside down in December 2007 when her 5-year-old daughter Mildrekia was hit by a car in Hempstead while walking home from school. At the time of the accident, the Curry family's attorney says the school crossing guard was on the wrong side of the street and wasn't carrying a stop sign. Mildrekia suffered a traumatic brain injury and can no longer speak or walk.After a five-year legal battle, the Village of Hempstead awarded the Curry family $16.6 million to help with medical care for the rest of Mildrekia's life. But her family says the fight doesn't stop there. They want more safety precautions put in place, including additional crossing guards and a lower speed limit.Officials from the Village of Hempstead say they're considering a number of new measures involving the safe crossing of schoolchildren.
