STURGIS, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota officials say a Nebraska woman is the second motorcyclist to die after a crash at the annual Sturgis motorcycle rally.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol says 59-year-old Debra Milota of Omaha was westbound on U.S. 14A west of Lead on Tuesday afternoon when she failed to negotiate a curve and crossed the center line into the path of an eastbound motorcycle.
The two cycles collided. Milota died Friday in Rapid City. Authorities say she was wearing a helmet.
The other two riders suffered minor injuries. Both were wearing helmets.
On Monday, a 29-year-old man died in a motorcycle crash south of Lead. The rally wrapped up Sunday.
