A Pennsylvania man arrested Saturday night for the murder of a woman is allegedly the same man who drove his car through a crowd raising money for fire victims earlier that night.

Adrian Oswaldo Sura Reyes, 24, has been charged with two counts of criminal homicide, the Pennsylvania State Police confirmed early Sunday.

Around 6:15 p.m. Saturday, police responded to calls in Berwick, about 50 miles southwest of Scranton, after a vehicle “drove through a crowd at a community event,” according to police.

One person was killed and 17 others were injured and transported to four different local hospitals.

The event, hosted at a bar and restaurant called Intoxicology Department, was fundraising for the victims of an Aug. 5 fire that killed 10 people.

“Today was an absolute tragedy,” Intoxicology Department wrote on Facebook Saturday night. “We will be closed until further notice. Please respect our privacy while we grieve and try to process the events that occurred. Thank you.”

Shortly after the crash, police were called to Nescopeck Borough, just across the Susquehanna River from Berwick, over a man “physically assaulting” a woman. By the time police arrived, the woman was dead.

The man, later identified as Reyes, has been arrested for both incidents.

None of the victims have been publicly identified.

Reyes is being held without bail at the Columbia County Correctional Facility.
