SABATTUS – Police are continuing their investigation into a Saturday night incident in which a 26-year-old local man was struck by a car on Crowley Road.

Michael Mador of Conway Street remained hospitalized Tuesday, receiving treatment for several injuries, said police Lt. Carl W. Foster.

“His family came in yesterday and said he was talking,” Foster said, adding that Mador’s ability to speak was a good sign.

“We though he was very badly hurt,” the lieutenant said.

Foster said Mador was injured about 9:20 p.m. Saturday night. Mador had parked his vehicle on the east side of Crowley Road and left his headlights on, facing into oncoming traffic, Foster said.

Mador then jumped out from the side of his vehicle into the path of the moving motor vehicle, Foster said.

He was struck by a 2004 Chevy Impala driven by Reginald Gracie, 33, of Bowdoin, the lieutenant said. Gracie doesn’t face any charges in the case, Foster added, because police found no fault on his part. The light from Mador’s vehicle blinded advancing drivers, he said.

Foster said he hasn’t had a chance to speak with Mador to determine what led him to leap in front of a moving vehicle.
