A man who admitted intentionally striking a pedestrian with his car in a Lansdale parking lot is going to prison. A Montgomery County judge gave 21-year-old Dion Wright of North Market Street in Hatfield three years and ten months to eight years in state prison after he pleaded guilty to felony aggravated assault in connection with the incident, which occurred last October outside the Twin Pines Apartments on North Valley Forge Road. The 33-year-old victim was flown to a hospital for treatment of multiple injuries including two broken legs. Witnesses say Wright had been thrown out of a party for being intoxicated and belligerent, and he was arguing with the other man just before he got in the car, revved up the engine, hit the victim, and ran over him.
