5th Motorcycle Fatality Reported In Sturgis Rally
RAPID CITY, SD -

A fifth motorcycle fatality has been reported in connection with the Sturgis Motorcycle rally in western South Dakota.

The state Highway Patrol reports that 76-year-old Wilbert Verpooten of Lake Orion, Michigan, was killed in a crash on U.S. Highway 85. Verpooten crossed the center line while traveling on a curve and hit a trailer pulled by a pickup driven by 45-year-old Lisa Hollars of Laurel, Indiana.

Verpooten was taken by ambulance to the Lead-Deadwood Hospital, where he died. Hollars was not injured in the crash.

The Highway Patrol reports that only one person had died in a traffic accident at this point in last year's rally. The rally officially started Monday and ends Sunday.
