'rampaging' man accused of terrorizing motorists on pa. highway


Recommended Posts

A man accused of rampaging along the busy Parkway East highway in Pittsburgh allegedly shattered windshields with rocks and a screwdriver and threatened to stab motorists.

According to KDKA-TV, it happened around 5 p.m. Sunday evening in the outbound lanes of the Parkway East, near the Oakland exit.

State police tell KDKA Daron Bivins, 25, of Pittsburgh, stopped his vehicle and started to damage other vehicles that were disabled on the Parkway East, using a bicycle frame and a screwdriver he obtained from one of the vehicles.

State police tell KDKA Bivins tried to stab multiple people with the screwdriver and later threatened to shoot police officers as they arrived to arrest him -- although it wasn't immediately clear whether he actually had a gun.

Bivins also grabbed a brick and threw it multiple times into the windshield of a PennDOT tow truck, KDKA writes, adding:

At last report, Bivins was lodged at the Allegheny County Jail on a long list of charges, including felony counts of aggravated assault.

All told, state police say 11 people were affected by Bivins' actions, including some with non-life-threatening injuries.

Also, four civilian vehicles and two PennDOT vehicles were damaged.
