Man charged after urinating outside car

| Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2006

An Allegheny County man is facing charges after police said they found him urinating outside his vehicle on the entrance ramp to the turnpike's Irwin interchange.

Edward C. Kruck, 51, of 206 Enger Ave., Ross Township, is charged with driving under the influence, open lewdness and careless driving. He faces a preliminary hearing Oct. 11 before North Huntingdon District Judge Douglas Weimer.

According to police, a motorist reported a black Chrysler New Yorker was driving below the speed limit and swerving between the left and right westbound lanes of Route 30, preventing other cars from passing him. The caller told police the car exited Route 30 at the entrance ramp to the turnpike.

Police said they arrived at the eastbound entrance ramp and observed a Chrysler with the hood raised and Kruck standing in front of the car urinating and exposing his genitals to passing motorists on the westbound ramp. After exiting the ramp and re-entering at the turnpike's westbound entrance, police said they found Kruck inside his vehicle with the engine running and his foot on the brake.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

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.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
