SUMMERSET, S.D.–Another motorcycle fatality in South Dakota during Sturgis Rally Bike Week.

The State Patrol says a 51 year-old man driving a Harley Davidson Road King eastbound on Interstate 90, two miles west of Summerset was killed Sunday afternoon.

The victim struck a motorcycle that was lying on the roadway.

The first cycle lost control when it swerved to avoid hitting an SUV.

It’s the second motorcycle fatality since the rally began late last week.

Meanwhile, the South Dakota DOT says traffic counts associated with the bike rally are running slighly ahead of the five year average.
