Car reportedly rams into crowd at fundraising event

Several people were injured after a car reportedly rammed into a crowd Saturday night at a fundraiser in Berwick, Pennsylvania.

The city’s addictions department was hosting a day-long fundraiser to benefit the families of Nescopeck fire victims, according to WNEP ABC-16.

Newsweek contacted the Berwick Borough Police Department for official details.

There were reports online that three helicopters were in the area and a fourth was requested, as well as a heavy presence of first responders. A report on the 12 County (PA) Fire Wire/News Page Twitter feed said a black Honda fled the scene, crossed the river and was involved in another incident in which the driver used a hammer to beat a woman.

The driver would be in custody.
