The Niagara County District Attorney has been appointed as special prosecutor by Ontario County District Attorney Jim Ritts to oversee the case involving a bicyclist that was struck by a car in Canandaigua last Wednesday. That’s according to a report from 13WHAM-TV.
The driver of the vehicle, 26 year old Christopher Catt, of Victor, is the current chief of staff for State Senator Pamela Helming. Catt is accused of striking Sarah Thompson in the crosswalk along South Main Street. He was allegedly on his phone at the time of the accident.
Thompson suffered a broken hand and ankle and received staples in her head and stitches on her face, while suffering a number of facial injuries as well.
