A tow truck driver was hit by a car at the scene of a motor-vehicle crash in Lyndonville Thursday.

 

Jeremiah Little, owner of Ace’s Towing on Hill Street, said he had just started to cross Broad Street to talk to a customer near the Miss Lyndonville Diner when a car he didn’t see coming drove over his foot and knocked him to the ground about ten feet away.

 

But he wasn’t seriously injured.

 

“My ankle’s still a little bit swollen but my toes move and my ankle moves so that’s a good thing,” said Little Thursday evening. “I looked to make sure the coast was clear and I didn’t see anything and I guess he was blinded by the lights on the ambulance a little bit. “

 

Little said he had been across town preparing the parking lot at the former Kennametal Plant on Main Street for the upcoming “Light Up The Night Holiday Parade” his company hosts each year when he was called to the multi-vehicle crash.

 

Little was evaluated on scene by Lyndon Rescue and declined transport. Then he went back to work at the Kennametal plant getting ready for the parade.

 

“No rest for the wicked,” said Little. “I got right back out there…”

 

Lyndonville Police say the incident occurred at 5:33 p.m. at 686 Broad Street at the scene of a three vehicle crash and that the car was a 2012 Ford Fusion operated by Justin Freeto, 42, of Lyndonville.

 

“It was reported Little stepped out onto the roadway as Justin Freeto was traveling south on Broad Street, resulting in his vehicle striking Little,” wrote Lyndonville Police Ofc. Brandon Thrailkill in a press release issued Thursday night. “Freeto reported he did not see Little and the lights from the ambulance on scene obstructed his vision. Little also reported he did not see Freeto traveling on Broad Street.”

 

“I Just relaxed and went with the flow,” Little said.
