SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A motorcyclist killed on a Temecula freeway was a highly decorated combat-veteran Marine stationed in Miramar, officials reported Thursday.
Master Gunnery Sgt. Brent Sherrell, 41, of Temecula, was riding about 20 mph in heavy traffic southbound on Interstate 15 about 6:15 a.m. Tuesday when his Harley-Davidson clipped a Jeep and crashed near Rancho California Road, according to USMC authorities and the California Highway Patrol.
Sherrell fell in front of a truck, and a trailer being hauled by the vehicle ran over him, inflicting fatal injuries, CHP Officer Ron Thatcher said.
Sherrell, a Camas, Wash., native who enlisted in the Marine Corps in October 1987, was a correctional liaison with Naval Consolidated Brig at USMC Air Station Miramar.
