SPENCER (CBS) – A National Grid worker was injured after being hit by a car in Spencer.
It happened Wednesday around noon in the area of Route 9 and Greenville Street. National Grid worker Paul Germano was on Main Street marking underground utility lines when he was hit by a car driven by 60-year-old Madeline Polselli.
Denise Cole lives nearby. “My daughter came down and said she hears screaming from her window. When she looked out, there was a person lying in the road.”
Main Street – which is also Route 9 – is the busiest road in town.
“People fly up and down. They go at least – I think it’s posted 35, it’s thickly settled over there – people probably go 60 up there,” said Brandi Curboy, a resident in the area.
Germano is in serious condition.
“We have limited information about the incident on Route 9 and are communicating with local authorities as they investigate the circumstances that led to our employee being injured. Our focus and thoughts are on our employee and his family as he receives medical attention,” National Grid spokesman Bob Kievra said in a statement.
Police are still investigating how the accident happened. There have been no charges filed against the driver.
