Early Morning Motorcycle Crash in Sioux Falls Leaves One Dead
Sioux Falls Fire Rescue arrived on the scene of a motorcycle crash around 3:00am Tuesday morning at the intersection of 26th and Kiwanis in Sioux Falls.
According to Sioux Falls Police and bystanders, one person is dead and another transported to a local hospital in critical condition.
Sioux Falls police say the motorcycle was traveling west-bound on 26th street when the driver failed to stop at the T intersection and collided with a chain-link fence.
According to a news release from the City of Sioux Falls, neither riders were wearing helmets and speed does appear to be a factor. Identity of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of relatives.
As of 7:20 A.M. the intersection was re-opened to traffic.
At a police conference on Tuesday morning, police Lieutenant Jerome Miller said the names of the two males could be released to the public tomorrow. He says both men are in their early 20s. He also added the men were at a house party a few blocks away from the scene.
