RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The driver of a motorcycle is dead following a crash with a pickup truck near Rapid City.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says the 35-year-old man died Tuesday at a Rapid City hospital where he was transported after the crash.

Authorities say the incident happened around 9:15 a.m., when the motorcycle was at the intersection of Wilderness Canyon Road and U.S. Highway 16. Authorities say that as the motorcycle proceeded into the intersection, it collided with a pickup truck that was attempting to pass a slower-moving dump truck.

The Highway Patrol says the man was wearing a helmet.

The driver of the pickup truck, a 69-year-old man, was also transported to a hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. He was wearing a seatbelt.

The crash remains under investigation.
