Police have identified the motorcyclist killed in an accident on Erie’s east side late Friday afternoon

Gail Shaw died in the three-vehicle accident on East Lake Road near Gilson Ave. around 4:45 p.m.

Police said Shaw was heading east on the motorcycle when two cars behind him - a Honda CRV and Buick car - collided as one moved into the other's lane. That started a chain-reaction crash where the Buick hit the motorcycle in front of it.

Shaw landed on the grass near the parking lot for the Boys and Girls Club of Erie and was pronounced dead at the scene by the coroner.
