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.
