Oakmont Man Injured In Drive-By Pumpkin Attack

OAKMONT (KDKA) – Oakmont Police are investigating after a 64-year-old man was hit in the head by a pumpkin.

Police Chief David DiSanti says Rose and Daniel Wagner were walking along the 900-block of Pennsylvania Avenue at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday when someone tossed the pumpkin from a moving car.

Daniel was taken to a local hospital emergency room for treatment. His wife told KDKA-TV it doesn't appear he had any brain injuries, but may have suffered a concussion.

He's also sore and bruised.

She said it happened so fast that her husband fell face down. They didn't realize it was a pumpkin that struck him at first.

Police are also investigating after a homeowner reported some pumpkins were stolen from outside her home shortly before Wagner was hit.

Police want to hear from people who may have heard or seen anything. Callers can remain anonymous.
