Herndon death leap driver sought

SUNBURY — An arrest warrant was issued for a 31-year-old Dalmatia man who failed to appear in Northumberland County Court Monday for jury selection on charges concerning his alleged responsibility in the April 2010, death of Bethany Harris.

Thomas L. Schorr and three passengers were traveling on McKees Road in Lower Mahanoy Township on April 12, 2010, when Schorr allegedly began driving erratically, prompting Harris to leap from the vehicle and to her death.

Schorr is charged with felony accident involving death while driving without a valid license, misdemeanor reckless endangerment and numerous summary counts and was scheduled to go on trial later this month.

Instead, he failed to show up at jury selection Monday morning and a warrant was issued for his arrest, public defender Paige Rosini said.
