MOUNT CARMEL — A man is now charged for a deadly crash in Northumberland County that killed a young woman last year.
Hasan Abuomar, 20, of Mount Carmel is charged with homicide by vehicle and involuntary manslaughter in the July 16, 2013 crash in Upper Augusta Township that killed Marcelle Barber, 18, of Mount Carmel.
According to court papers, Abuomar was a back seat passenger in the vehicle driven by Barber. At first the other passengers told state police they did not know what caused the crash. But later, one of the passengers told state police that Abuomar grabbed the wheel causing the car to lose control.
Marcelle Barber was a 2013 graduate of Mount Carmel Area High School.
