A Vienna man was taken to the hospital Thursday afternoon after being hit by a car. Now, the driver of the car is facing several charges.

According to Oneida County Sheriff, Robert Maciol, sheriff’s deputies responded to a car-pedestrian crash along Lake Street in the Town of Vienna.

When deputies arrived on scene they found Daniel F. McCarthy, 35, of Vienna - lying in the roadway with severe injuries to his lower extremities. The involved vehicle and driver were not on scene.

The driver of the vehicle, Jeffrey M. Wisinski, 46, of Vienna - was located a short time later.  After further investigation, authorities determined the crash happened following a dispute between the involved parties over speeding in the roadway.

Wisinski was charged with assault.  He was also charged with operating a motor vehicle with a suspended registration, leaving the scene of a personal injury motor vehicle accident, and operating an unregistered motor vehicle.

Wisinski was sent to the Oneida County Jail on no bail.

McCarthy was treated at the scene by the North Bay Volunteer Fire Department and later transported to SUNY Upstate Medical Center for his injuries.  Authorities said the injuries do not appear to be life threatening.
