North Huntingdon man pleads guilty in road rage case

Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2014, 5:27 p.m.
 

A North Huntingdon man was sentenced Tuesday to 28 months to 10 years in a state prison for a 2011 road rage incident on Route 22.

Craig D. Woodward, 44, cut his April trial short and opted to plead guilty to aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, simple assault and reckless driving for beating a motorcyclist with a metal pipe or club near New Alexandria.

Woodward was ordered by President Judge Richard E. McCormick Jr. to continue mental health treatment upon release from prison.

During the trial, the motorcyclist testified that he was chased by the driver of a Toyota Prius, nearly forced off the road and then attacked.
