NEWELL, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Highway Patrol says a motorcyclist has died after getting hit by a pickup truck south of Newell.

Authorities say the motorcycle’s 60-year-old driver was pronounced dead Friday at the scene. The 64-year-old woman riding as a passenger received serious injuries that were not a threat to her life.

The Highway Patrol says a deer collided with the motorcycle and caused the driver to lose control. Officials say the motorcycle slid into another lane and was hit by the pickup.

The pickup driver and passenger received minor injuries. Authorities did not immediately release their names.
