PA Biker Killed by Suspected Drunk Driver

By: Lisa Marie Vari, the Biker Chick Lawyer

A 23-year old man from Somerset County, Jessey T. Morrison, is dead as a result of a motorcycle collision between his bike and a car. According to police reports, the car, a pick-up truck, which was driven by 56 year old Leroy Lepley, swerved into the lane and hit Mr. Morrison's motorcycle.

The accident occurred along Main Street and Hower Avenue in Boswell on Saturday night around 6 in the evening. According to initial police reports Mr. Lepley is suspected of drunk driving and the intoxication is preliminarily listed as the cause of the accident.

As a result of the impact with the pick-up truck Mr. Morrison was thrown from his motorcycle and sustained extremely severe injuries. The injuries were so serious that they resulted in his death.

Upon arriving at the scene, police stated that Mr. Lepley was determined by to be under the influence of alcohol and was taken into custody. If and when charges will be filed against him depends on the result of the blood tests conducted while in custody.

In the wake of this tragedy our thoughts are with the Morrison family. This tragic case serves as a reminder to all driver, bikers or not, to avoid drinking and drive. If you are out with buddies at a bar always have a designated driver. If you are out at a bike night event and have one drink too many, just call a cab. Drinking and driving is never worth it.
