SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A Navy veteran was killed early Saturday morning when his motorcycle struck a suspected drunk driver on the 94 freeway. 

The CHP said the woman crashed her car into the center median and was assisted by a good Samaritan who helped her get out of her car and to the side of the road. 

For some unknown reason the woman returned to her car, and was struck by a motorcycle. The motorcycle driver was 38 year old Jason Bullock a Navy veteran who was returning to his El Cajon home after attending a motorcycle club event.

Krystle Shannon was devastated when she learned Bullock would not be coming home...ever.  Shannon said Bullock was the love of her life. 

She knows her life will be empty without him. "I am really going to miss everything about him," said Shannon, wiping away tears.

The two had been best friends for 13 years, but their relationship had developed into love the past couple of years.  

"He was an awesome guy. He was funny. He had a beautiful smile. He hated it but many of us really loved his smile," said Shannon.

Bullock was an awesome father, Shannon said. Family members provided 10News with more than a dozen pictures of Bullock with his girls. 

They were always smiling, like their dad. Bullock was well known in the San Diego music scene. He had a small recording studio in Mount Hope called E'Amari, and had just completed a recording dedicated to his mother, who passed away earlier this year.

He was also an avid motorcycle enthusiast. and vice-president of the San Diego Deuces Motorcycle Club.  "Any chance he got he would get on that motorcycle and ride," said club president, Kevin Schoep.

"It’s a tragic thing to say, but I think this is the way he would want to go, on his motorcycle," Schoep added.  Schoep said the club will do what it can to support Bullock's family, especially his two daughters. A CHP spokesman told 10News the crash is still under investigation, and there's a chance the woman who was struck by Bullock's motorcycle could face a vehicular manslaughter charge when she's released from the hospital.
