State police were called to the region close to the Intoxicology Department bar in Berwick at around 6:15 p.m. on Saturday, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Anthony Petroski told correspondents.
Police said a vehicle "passed through a group at a local area occasion." Officers then, at that point, got a call about a man supposedly attacking a lady in adjoining Nescopeck County, Petroski said.
He said officials showed up to track down a lady dead at the scene. Officials confined the man, who they said was a suspect in the two episodes, police said.
Police have not distinguished the suspect or definite potential charges. Petroski said examiners were deciding if the suspect deliberately crashed into the group.
Dependence Fire Company No. 1, which serves Berwick, said groups were on the location of a "mass loss episode" at the bar Saturday night.
"Kindly keep away from the region as this is a continuous episode and will be for quite a while," the fire organization said on Facebook.
