CAMDEN, Del.- Police say the driver who struck a school crossing guard in front of Caesar Rodney High School on Monday morning received a traffic ticket in connection with the incident.

Camden police said that at approximately 7:50 a.m. Monday, 44-year-old David A. Dunningham of Camden-Wyoming was driving a 2002 Chevrolet pickup truck eastbound on Old North Road and approaching the west driveway of Caesar Rodney High School. Police said that meantime, the crossing guard, 53-year-old Joseph L. Ramsey, of Dover, was standing on Old North Road and directing traffic at the west driveway.

According to authorities, Dunningham failed to see Ramsey and struck him in the left side with the front of the truck. Police noted that that Ramsey was wearing a reflective vest and holding a "stop" placard at the time of the incident.

Ramsey was taken to Kent General Hospital and treated and released for bruises and abrasions to his left knee and left hip. 

Officers said they cited Dunningham for careless driving.
