On December 11, state police cited Donald Raymond Dillon, 76, Tyrone and Duayne Carnett Dillon, 43, Tyrone for harassment after they grabbed and pushed Claude Clark Lewis, 72, Tyrone during an argument. The incident occurred at SR 4027 and Templeton Rd., Snyder Township.
State police reported on January 1 that Trevor D. Harbst, 22, Warriors Mark lost control of the 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe he was operating as he attempted to negotiate the vehicle through a left curve along SR 453, less than a mile south of Tyrone Borough. The vehicle spun partially counter-clockwise and traveled in that manner across the opposite lane. The right rear corner of the vehicle struck a rock embankment causing the right rear wheel to be torn from the vehicle. Harbst was found seated in the driver’s seat by other motorists who arrived on the scene subsequent to the crash.
Harbst was placed under arrest for suspicion of DUI and transported to Bon Secours for blood-alcohol testing. He was later admitted to the hospital due to his declining physical condition once he was at the hospital.
