Amherst, NY (WKBW) Two striking CWA workers were allegedly hit by a car trying to enter the Verizon offices in Amherst, Monday morning. Union members say a vehicle driven by an out of state replacement worker struck two picketers who were demonstrating outside of the office on Millersport Highway. The two workers suffered minor injuries and were treated and released. Amherst Police say details are too murky to file criminal charges at this time.
