A Toledo man was indicted by a Lucas County grand jury Tuesday on charges he struck and injured a road construction worker with a car in the central city.

Robert Sinkey, 25, of 1001 Mott Ave., was indicted for felonious assault, failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer, and grand theft of a motor vehicle.
