PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Authorities say a driver accused of injuring four police officers at a north Philadelphia accident scene before he was shot and critically injured has been charged with attempted homicide.

Forty-seven-year-old Rudolph Keitt is also charged with aggravated assault, criminal mischief, attempting to flee and reckless endangerment.

Authorities allege that the driver hit a wall May 12, then struggled with responding officers and drove off, striking three officers and injuring a fourth two miles away before he was shot.

Court documents don’t list an attorney for Keitt and a number listed in his name had been disconnected. WCAU-TV reported that attorney Brian Mildenberg said in a statement that the family contends that the episode was due to Keitt’s medical problems, which include a heart condition and a history of seizures.
