By Ed Waggener

A new Adair Countian, who recently moved here from Seattle, WA, and who had won many friends in his adopted Kentucky neighborhood, died in a highway tragedy in eastern Pennsylvania.

Gregg Lee Gammack, Columbia, KY, was killed after his motorcycle left the roadway, struck a guardrail at Mile Point 19.8 in Greene Township in Pike Co., PA, on Interstate 84 on Thursday afternoon, September 9, 2010.

A dispatcher with Blooming Grove Barracks of Troop R, of the Pennsylvania State Police, said that the accident was reported to the Pennsylvania State Police at 3:15pmET.

The dispatcher said that Mr. Gammack was pronounced dead at the scene. She said that I-84 was closed for approximately 3 hours as a result of the wreck.

Pike County is located on the eastern border of Pennsylvania. Blooming Grove Township is in the central part of the county.

According to friends in Adair County, Mr. Gammack's wife was riding on a separate motorcycle and was not involved in the accident. She is being escorted back to Kentucky by neighbors who drove to Pennsylvania to be with her and see her safely home.
