Motorcyclist Killed In Sioux Falls Crash

Motorcyclist Killed In Sioux Falls Crash

A man is dead after a motorcycle crash on the city's west side. It happened at the intersection of 26th Street and Edna Avenue, just north of the Marion Road Hy-Vee store.

Calls for a rescue came in, but the damage was already done.

"It was determined that the motorcycle driver was deceased on scene," Sioux Falls Police Sergeant Galen Smidt said.

Police say a 37-year-old man struck a GMC Envoy stopped at the street corner.

"Traffic was heavy at the time. He proceeded to pull out in the intersection and turn left and eastbound," Smidt said.

That's when Smidt says the motorcycle struck the SUV head on. The man on the motorcycle was not wearing a helmet.

Police spent the evening reconstructing the crash, measuring motorcycle debris and even the bike's skid marks on the street to figure out what happened in the moments before the crash.

"At this point, it's too early to tell whether a helmet would have saved him or not," Smidt said.

The name of the motorcycle operator is not being released pending the notification of family members. The SUV driver walked away from the crash.
