At 1:51am on November 11, 2017, Lebanon Communications received a call of a male subject hit by a car and needing medical attention. The crash occurred near the intersection of North Main Street and East Wilder Road. The driver of the car, Derek Moniz, was traveling south on North Main Street and struck 21-year-old Anthony Ciaccia of White River Junction, Vermont who was walking in the roadway. The impairment of the pedestrian appears to be a factor of the accident. It is still under investigation but no charges are anticipated.
Both Lebanon Police and Fire Departments responded to the scene and provided medical care to Ciaccia. Ciaccia was transported to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries and is expected to be released later in the week.
