Around 3:15 p.m. on Aug. 6, troopers responded to a call regarding a car crash at a residence in Decatur Township, the Pennsylvania State Police said.
Once at the scene, police determined the “crash was an intentional act.”
Court records state 20-year-old Evan Thomas Miller was driving at a high rate of speed when the car hit a culvert and went flying. The airborne vehicle then slammed into the second story of the home, right above a room where three people were seated, WJAC-TV reported.
Miller reportedly exited the car and started running around the scene, claiming he wanted to hurt himself because he saw demons and believed he was a demon, WJAC-TV reported.
An official at the scene reportedly said Miller was “attempting to inflict self-harm due to a mental health episode.”
