South Dakota - RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Officials are stressing safety at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in western South Dakota, where three bikers have died in a span of about 12 hours.
Motorcyclists from Minnesota and Indiana died in crashes on Sunday, and one from Colorado died Monday. The rally that draws hundreds of thousands of people to South Dakota's Black Hills each summer officially began Monday and runs through Sunday.
Four motorcycle deaths were recorded during rally week last year, according to the Highway Patrol. The most deaths in the past five years occurred in 2010, when nine people died.
