Rolf Dominikow, 68, was the pedestrian injured in the Dec. 20 crash in Richfield Springs involving a State Fire vehicle.

Dominikow was one of 10 people injured in the crash. Those 10 people are still looking for closure, because the investigation has been ongoing since December.

Dominikow says he was walking out of the post office to his car when the accident happened.

"I heard the bang, I looked and I see this car flying at me sideways and the next thing I know it's hitting the back of my car, I remember it coming into contact with me but that's the last thing I remember," Dominikow said. "When I was waking up, I was laying on the ground and my face was full of blood, my throat was full of blood. I'm just a poor guy in the end that got hurt and would like to see some kind of a closure to this, find out what happened and go on from there."

Otsego County Sheriff Richard Devlin says law enforcement ordered a subpoena for records in the case. Devlin says once those come in, he will meet with the district attorney for a final conclusion.

Devlin also says it is not unusual for investigations like this to take months to complete.
