STURGIS, SD -
A South Dakota man accused in a hit-and-run crash that killed a Nebraska motorcyclist at this summer's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally has pleaded not guilty.
Thirty-four-year-old Robert Pittman of Rapid City is charged with second-degree manslaughter and hit and run resulting in death. He could face up to 20 years in prison if he's convicted.
Authorities say Pittman rear-ended a motorcycle during the mid-August rally and then left the scene. Forty-four-year-old Brian Bye of Lincoln, Neb., died in the crash.
Prosecutors say Pittman has an extensive record of driving violations. He is on house arrest and barred from driving while he awaits his next court appearance on Oct. 12.
