Prior to driving home and using a hammer to murder his mother, a deranged Pennsylvania man has admitted to ramming his car into a gathering of people, killing one and injuring 17 others.

According to a criminal complaint that WYOU was able to receive, 24-year-old Adrian Oswaldo Sura Reyes of Nescopeck allegedly had a fight with his mother before getting in a car and travelling to the nearby town of Berwick, where the fatal collision took place.

Police said that as he passed the Intoxicology Department bar, people were gathered there for a fundraiser for the loved ones of the 10 persons who sadly perished in a fire earlier this month. After making the decision to drive into the crowd, he made a U-turn.

Reyes explained to authorities that he was simply sick of arguing with his mother.

Around 6:15 p.m., he charged into the throng, killing Rebecca L. Reese, 50, and injuring 17 other people.

“I didn’t ram ’em, I just ran them over,” Reyes said to police, according to the affidavit.

After the crash, Reyes drove back home. When he arrived, he saw his mother standing outside in the street. Cops said he floored the gas and crashed into her with the front of his car.

He told police he got a hammer from his car and bashed his mother in the head four or five times with it. When police arrived on scene they found the woman dead and arrested Reyes.

“This is a complete tragedy in a community where there’s already been tragedy,” State Trooper Anthony Petroski told reporters.

Around three in the morning on Sunday, the suspected murderer apologised as he was being escorted to court by Pennsylvania State Police, according to WYOU.

According to the detectives, Reyes is charged with two open counts of criminal homicide. He was turned down for bail and is now being held at the Columbia County Correctional Facility.

WYOU verified the health of 15 of the 17 injured victims.

Geisinger Medical Center Danville has treated and released five additional victims, leaving five in critical condition and two in fair condition.

Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center has released two patients, and Geisinger Bloomsburg Hospital has treated and released one patient.
