ATV accident with Sheriff's car settled

Kenneth J.S. Martin, from Wilson, New York, reached a settlement in his suit against Niagara County after he sustained injuries in a collision with the sheriff's car.

Mr. Martin was driving an ATV on the highway, without a helmet, without license plates or registration when he was hit by the sheriff’s patrol car. The collision caused his ATV to flip four times. The accident caused injuries that left Mr. Martin with double vision and a brain injury that caused short-term memory loss. Niagara County is paying $305,000 to resolve the lawsuit.
