The lawyer for Charlie Gerow, a Republican candidate for governor, says it appears Gerow didn't hit the motorcyclist who was killed on the Pennsylvania Turnpike last week.
Gerow apparently drove for several miles with the motorcycle stuck on the front of his car before pulling over, according to a construction worker who saw the car speed by.
Lawyer Joseph P. Green Jr. also says Gerow wasn't driving impaired. Green says it appears that the motorcycle was lying in the roadway when Gerow hit it, impaling it on his Mercedes.
The accident shut down the Pennsylvania Turnpike for seven hours and left motorcyclist Logan Carl Abbott dead.
The lawyer for a Republican candidate for Pennsylvania governor said Monday his client apparently did not hit the motorcyclist who was killed on the Pennsylvania Turnpike last week, but rather hit the downed motorcycle in the road.
The candidate, Charlie Gerow, was not driving impaired and voluntarily gave a blood sample, attorney Joseph P. Green Jr. said.
An attendee at the political fundraiser Gerow had been attending in suburban Philadelphia last Wednesday evening said she never saw him drinking and that he seemed sober when he left.
State police have said little about what they have found in their investigation into the crash, which shut down the turnpike overnight and left motorcyclist Logan Carl Abbott dead.
