WERNERSVILLE, Pa. -

A man who was shot by police for allegedly trying to run down two officers is heading to trial.

Rodney Hojnowski waived his preliminary hearing Tuesday.

Hojnowski was shot as he drove at the officers in the area of Route 724 and Iroquois Avenue in Spring Twp., Berks Co. on March 20, police said.

Hojnowski then drove more than a mile before he collapsed on Cleveland Avenue, police said.

He's charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault and resisting arrest.

On Monday, the Berks County district attorney ruled the officers were justified in shooting Hojnowski.
