Shakopee Man Killed in S.D. Motorcycle Crash 15 Aug 11

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says a Shakopee man was killed after his motorcycle slid into the rear of a stopped pickup on U.S. Highway 85. The Rapid City Journal reports that the brake on the motorcycle ridden by 54-year-old Robert Best locked up, causing him to lay the bike down on the highway and slide into the back of a pickup on Friday. Troopers say Best died from his injuries at a Spearfish hospital. Twenty-two-year-old Kelly Nible, the pickup’s driver, was not injured. He was charged with having invalid license plates and a seat-belt violation.
