Visalia, Hanford, Lemoore Car Collision Attorney John L. Rozier has the following report; On Monday, October 5, 2015, a tractor-trailer accident ended in fatality for one motorcyclist. The Kings County semi truck collision took place near Lemoore, on State Route 198, at approximately 1:20 PM.
A 2000 Yamaha motorcycle, driven by Jessie Lee Gallagher, 20 years old, of Idaho, was eastbound on Highway 198, west of the Lemoore Naval Air Station. Gallagher was enlisted in the United States Navy, and stationed at the NAS Lemoore base.
As the bike was traveling east, a Peterbilt big rig was merging onto the freeway, from Jameson Avenue. The biker smashed into the back of the semi truck, and he was ejected from the Yamaha.
Gallagher died at the scene of the collision.
This accident requires much more investigation. The police report may take several weeks to prepare-in the meantime we can probably obtain a cover sheet of the accident report for the family of the deceased.
