15 Year Old Struck By Car While Jogging With Father

Lewes – The Delaware State Police are investigating a collision that involved a young pedestrian jogging on a back road west of Lewes earlier this morning.

The incident occurred around 8:03 a.m. this morning, Wednesday August 3, 2016, as 15 year old male, of Rehoboth, was jogging with his father southbound on Hopkins Road approaching Beaver Dam Road (SR23).  When the boy entered into the intersection to run eastbound on SR23, he failed to see a 2014 Isuzu truck (Sposato Landscaping) being operated by Gary C. Frazier, 31 of Milton, traveling eastbound on the same road, police said. The truck then struck the young boy as he ran in front of it and immediately came to a quick stop.

Anthony 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.

Gary Frazier was properly restrained and uninjured in the collision.

The father of Monaco was not injured and was running slightly behind the young boy when he was struck.

No citations were issued in this incident, according to police.
