MCKEESPORT, Pa. - A middle school student who was killed in a pedestrian crash is being remembered in a unique way.
Aly Higdon, 14, was killed in March 2014 when a dump truck hit her as she was walking near the intersection of Eden Park and O'Neil boulevards in McKeesport.
Family gathered at that same spot on Thursday.
Channel 11's Liz Kilmer was there as family members and city officials honored her memory by hanging a safety sign.

The "Aly's Rules" sign stems from a school curriculum the family launched years back, teaching students in the McKeesport School District to be cautious when crossing streets.
They hope to bring the lessons to other districts as well while placing those signs at as many bus stops as possible.
