SMITH COUNTY, Texas — Officials have identified the East Texas motorcyclist who was killed after a three-vehicle wreck on State Highway 155 in Smith County last week.
Last Friday, Sean O. Leary, 39, of Frankston, was driving a 2003 Yamaha motorcycle southbound on State Highway 155, while Dorothy D. Lee, 37, of Tyler, was driving a 2007 Chrysler Sebring and was stopped at a stop sign on County Road 196 facing west. A third vehicle, which was driven by Tiffany J. Giertych, 43, of Tyler, was stopped at a stop sign on County Road 196 facing east, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Lee failed to yield the right of way to Leary and collided with Leary's motorcycle in the intersection. The third vehicle sustained only minor damage after the initial collision.
Leary was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was injured in the wreck, DPS said.
