A 32 year old Prattsburgh man is at Strong Memorial Hospital after being struck by a truck Friday morning on Recreation Drive in the town of Hopewell.
The incident happened shortly before 5 o’clock and when deputies arrived on scene they found Jesse Gettings in the Applebee’s parking lot laying down complaining of leg and internal injuries. Witnesses claimed a Ford Ranger truck intentionally struck Gettings, throwing him several feet before heading east on State Routes 5 and 20. The truck was located a short time later in Geneva and its driver, 30 year old Keir Groose-Rhode, of Brewer, Maine, was charged with assault.
A portion of Recreation Drive was shut down for approximately 3 hours while the accident was reconstructed.
