NF Water Board Employee Leaves Scene of Accident Sicurella says he thought he hit curb, not sign at Tim Hortons on Pine Ave.

May 20, 2014

Anthony L Sicurella, a long time employee of the Niagara Falls Water Board, was involved in a traffic accident - arguably a hit and run.

Sicurella, driving a Water Board-owned truck, crashed into a sign at Tim Horton's at Pine Ave and Hyde Park, while going through the donut shop drive through - around 3 am Saturday morning.

Sicurella did not report the crash but, after cracking the sign, drove off.

The management at Tim Hortons reported the accident to police the following morning.

Thanks to security cameras, Niagara Falls police were able to identify the truck and driver after an employee at the water board identified Sicurella.

Police went to his house that morning and a sober Sicurella told police he knew nothing of hitting the sign but that he thought he hit a curb.

He said he was not drinking at the time.

Since he was sober when police interviewed him and they had no clear proof that Sicurella knowingly drove from the scene of an accident, they did not charge him.

Sicurella, who records show, earns $49,712 per year and is a crew leader, took a week off form work, sources told the Reporter.

Sicurella's wife is clerk for Lewiston Town Court.

Niagara Falls Water Board Executive Director, Paul Drof said he was aware of the incident but declined to comment.

"This is a personnel matter. It will be investigated. He is innocent unless he is proven guilty of something," Drof said.
