Jamichael Moore, 25-year-old, was struck crossing Hwy. 84 Thursday
A Pierce County man was killed Thursday, January 2, when his mo-ped was struck by a vehicle on U.S. Highway 84 at its intersection with Highway Avenue.
Jamichael ‘J. Mike’ Moore, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which occurred at approximately 9 p.m.
“He was a very likeable guy,” says Larry Lively, Moore’s uncle. “His personality is what really stands out. He wasn’t a talkative person like that, but he was alright.”
Moore had a young son, Lively says.
“He loved his family,” Lively says.
According to Police Chief Chris Wright, Moore reportedly pulled out in front of Donna Deloach, 61, of Blackshear, who was driving a Honda HR-V eastbound on Hwy. 84 towards Patterson. Deloach had a three-year-old passenger in her vehicle. Neither were hurt in the wreck.
The highway was closed to through traffic for nearly two hours. Investigators cleared the scene at 10:45 p.m.
Rainge Memorial Chapel Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements for Moore. Funeral arrangements were pending at press time.
