A Camden man was cited for careless driving Monday after he struck a Caesar Rodney High School crossing guard on Old North Road just east of West Street in town.
David A. Dunningham, 44, of East Camden Wyoming Ave, was driving his 2002 Chevrolet pick up truck eastbound on Old North Rd approaching the west driveway of Caesar Rodney High School around 7:50 a.m. Monday, Camden Police Captain Gary R. Melvin said. Joseph L. Ramsey, 53, a CR employee, was standing on Old North Road at the west driveway wearing a reflective vest and holding a stop placard to direct traffic.
Dunningham failed to see Mr. Ramsey and struck him in the left side with the front of the truck, Melvin said. The Camden Wyoming Fire Company then transported Ramsey to Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital in Dover, he said. Ramsey, of Kenton Road in Dover, was treated and released for contusions and abrasions to his left knee and left hip.
Dunningham was then ticketed by Camden Police.
