George Brauchler, the current 18th Judicial District attorney and a hopeful for Colorado attorney general, is nursing a broken pinkie after he was hit by a car while riding his bike Tuesday morning.

“At the end of the day, I’m just lucky that the injuries that I have aren’t worse,” he said.

Brauchler said the driver who hit him was looking left as she was turning right, and he rolled over the hood of the car somewhere in the area of Lincoln Avenue and Lone Tree Parkway.

The woman was cited, according to Brauchler, and since it was a municipal ticket, his office wouldn’t be the one responsible for the prosecution. Otherwise, Brauchler said he’d have to hire a special prosecutor.
