LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – Authorities have charged a Lancaster man for causing a crash that left himself and another passenger critically injured.
Jason A. Marsico, 44, was jailed Tuesday following his release from the hospital. He was arraigned on two counts of felony aggravated assault.
Marsico allegedly made hand gestures at a driver before he drove his Ford Explorer into the driver’s Ford Taurus last week on Route 30.
Authorities say Marsico’s Explorer rolled over several times, ejecting Marsico and his female passenger onto the median of the roadway.
A witness told police that Marsico was tailgating the Taurus before it eventually struck the car.
The driver of the Taurus told police he passed the Explorer a few miles before he said he was rammed by Marsico.
A 25-year-old woman was ejected from Marsico’s vehicle’s sunroof.
She was treated in the hospital for a broken arm. Police believe she may never regain full use of her right arm as a result of the injuries.
Marsico has been released on $75,000 bail.
