HARRISBURG (AP) – The lawyer for Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Gerow says it appears Gerow did not hit the motorcyclist who was killed on the PA Turnpike last week. Lawyer Joseph Green Jr. also says Gerow was not driving impaired. Green says it appears that the motorcycle was lying in the roadway when Gerow hit it, impaling it on his Mercedes. An attendee at a political fundraiser Gerow had been attending in suburban Philadelphia last Wednesday evening said she did not see him drinking and that he seemed sober when he left. The accident shut down the PA Turnpike for seven hours and left 30-year-old motorcyclist Logan Carl Abbott of Bradford County dead.
