Troopers Investigate Crash Involving Pedestrian in Lewes

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a collision that involved a young pedestrian jogging on a back road west of Lewes on Wednesday morning.

Investigators said the accident occurred around shortly after 8 a.m. as 15-year-old Anthony Monaco of Rehoboth Beach, was jogging with his father southbound on Hopkins Road approaching Beaver Dam Road (SR23).  Police said when Monaco entered into the intersection to run eastbound on SR23, he failed to see a 2014 Isuzu truck being driven by 31-year-old Gary C. Frazier, of Milton, who was traveling eastbound on the same road.  The truck then struck the young boy as he ran in front of it and immediately came to a quick stop.

Monaco, who was thrown to the ground, was initially airlifted to Christiana Medical Center before being transferred to A.I. DuPont where he is currently admitted in stable condition with apparent non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Frazier was properly restrained and uninjured in the collision, investigators said.

Troopers said Monado's father was not injured and was running slightly behind his son when he was struck.

No citations were issued in the incident.
