A Pennsylvania man showed up to a wedding uninvited and caused more trouble than anyone might have thought possible. When the intoxicated wedding crasher was asked to leave the event, he got into his vehicle and allegedly caused two different types of car accidents before his evening ended. A motive for his behavior has not been revealed.
When asked to leave the wedding, to which he wasn’t invited, the man became aggressive. At some point during the confrontation, he decided to get into his vehicle. That is when the auto accident occurred. He allegedly ran over a man when he accelerated his car. He also allegedly hit another car that was parked nearby.
The man will be charged with aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence, according to police. The man who was run over suffered minor injuries from the impact. No information is available as to whether he went to the hospital. The wedding crasher was transported to the hospital following the incident. No information was available on his state of mind or injuries he may have suffered during to the accident. A court date on the matter is not currently available
The man who was run over in this case might have grounds for a lawsuit against the alleged perpetrator. A lawyer might be able to help the man seek compensation for injuries due to the car accident. Medical expenses as well as pain and suffering may be among the damages that the injured man could claim for compensation. A drunk driver who causes an accident can cause serious injury to innocent people. Fortunately, it appears the injuries in this accident were minor.
