A man who was driving with a suspended license is facing charges in a crash this week that killed an off-duty deputy sheriff in Bucks County.
In the Tuesday night crash on Route 313 near Sterner Mill Road in East Rockhill Township, 27-year-old Harry Burak made a left turn into a driveway, crossing into the path Keith Clymer's motorcycle, the Bucks County District Attorney's Office said.
Clymer, a 48-year-old sheriff's deputy from Kintnersville, slammed into Burak's truck in the 8:30 p.m. crash.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. Clymer had worked as a deputy sheriff since December 2013, was part of the domestic relations warrant team, and was a self-defense and defensive tactics instructor, officials said.
"Keith was liked by all who met and worked with him," the Sheriff's Office wrote on its Facebook page. "He will be sorely missed by all."
Burak, of East Rockhill Township, was driving his 2017 Dodge Ram 5500 on a suspended license after previous convictions for driving under the influence, prosecutors said.
He is now facing charges of causing an accident resulting in death or injury while not properly licensed and driving with a suspended license.
Officers reported smelling alcohol on Burak's breath after the crash but prosecutors said the role alcohol may have played in the crash remains under investigation.
