A Cranberry man was drunk when he ran a red light in his Nissan Murano and struck a Subaru in the North Side early Sunday, sending two people to the hospital, court documents say.
Andrew Patrick Orr, 26, remains in Allegheny County Jail after being charged with aggravated assault by a vehicle while intoxicated, driving under the influence and a pair of traffic violations in connection with the 4 a.m. crash at the intersection of West General Robinson and Anderson Street.
Orr told police that he'd been gambling all night at the Rivers Casino. His blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit, according to the incident report.
Paramedics took two of the three occupants in the Subaru to Allegheny General Hospital. Passenger Chaz Scheidlmeir is listed in serious condition with a head injury. Joseph Cyprowski, the driver, was treated for shoulder and neck injuries and released.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
