MIAMI (AP) - Two people are dead and another is in critical condition following separate crashes involving all-terrain vehicles and motorcycles following the third annual Wheels Up, Guns Down ride.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the motorcyclist was injured when he crashed into a pickup truck in Miami on Monday evening. Hours later, Miami police responded to a fatal dirt bike accident.

News outlets report the dirt bike, which didn’t have lights, collided with a Toyota Camry at an intersection. Miami police spokesman Christopher Bess says the rider was taken to the hospital where he died.

Authorities say a man riding an ATV was killed when he crashed into another off-road vehicle on the Palmetto Expressway in Miami.

The event is tied to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.
