NIVERVILLE, N.Y. - New York State Police say a Columbia County man is facing additional charges after he allegedly struck a pedestrian and fled the scene while riding his ATV in April.

Police say 22-year-old Trevor Zolner of Niverville was riding his 2002 Honda ATV on a concourse in Niverville when he struck a 16-year-old pedestrian who was walking along the roadway.

The pedestrian suffered serious injuries including a concussion, severely fractured right leg, kidney and liver injuries and multiple pelvic fractures, police say.

Zolner fled the scene and found by troopers a short time later. He was transported to Albany Medical Center and treated for a fractured sternum and multiple lacerations.

He was initially charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Leaving the Scene of an Accident Resulting in Serious Personal Injury. He has now additionally been charged with first-degree Vehicular Assault and Driving While Intoxicated with blood alcohol content greater than .08%. Police say his BAC that night was .17%, more than twice the legal limit.
