The driver who allegedly killed one person and wounded 17 others when he rammed his car through a crowd in Pennsylvania — before fleeing and slaying a woman in a nearby town — said “sorry” as cops took him to his court appearance Sunday.
Adrian Oswaldo Sura Reyes — a 24-year-old from Nescopeck near Berwick, where the tragic Saturday evening incident took place — was charged with two counts of criminal homicide and denied bail, the Times Leader reported.
As he was being led to court by Pennsylvania State Police early Sunday, the accused killer said “sorry,” the newspaper reported.
Reyes allegedly plowed through a crowd outside of a restaurant in Berwick at around 6:15 p.m. Saturday as they attended a benefit for victims of a massive house fire that killed 10 people last week. Those who died in the inferno were all related.
The maniac driver then fled and assaulted a woman in Necopeck, cops said. Authorities didn’t provide details about the fatal attack.
Asked if Reyes was also a suspect in the Aug. 5 blaze, State Police Office Anthony Petroski told reporters “not at this time,” the Times Leader reported.
The status of the 17 wounded by the car attack wasn’t clear, but all had been hospitalized, Petroski said.
Reyes was being held at the Columbia County Correctional Facility.
