Bookmark and Share

Sioux Falls Police are investigating a deadly motorcycle crash at 26th Street and Kiwanis Avenue.

Authorities have confirmed one person is dead and another has non-life threatening injuries. The names have not been released, however officials say they were both males, under 30 years of age.

Authorities say the crash happened Tuesday, just before 3 a.m., near the intersection of 26th Street and Kiwanis Avenue. They say a 2002 Suzuki motorcycle was being driven westbound on 26th Street when it failed to stop or turn at Kiwanis Avenue. The motorcycle went through the intersection and then crashed into a chain-link fence near a home.

One man died at the scene, and another was injured and taken to a nearby hospital.

"Apparently [driver] didn't realize it was an intersection and lost control. The bike ended up lodged in the fence,"said Lt. Jerome Miller, of the Sioux Falls Police Department.

Portions of Kiwanis Avenue from 22nd Street to 28th Street were closed for approximately three and half hours to investigate. 26th Street between Kiwanis Avenue and Williams Avenue was closed as well but has since opened back up.

Authorities say neither the driver nor the passenger was wearing a helmet and speed does appear to be a factor.

The investigation is continuing.
