According to KOTA TV, James and Deanna Bradley, 54 and 45, were killed when their motorcycle slammed into the side of a semi on Highway 14-16 as they crossed the intersection with South Ellsworth Road. Another motorcycle also hit the semi but the riders were not seriously injured, according to the report.

According to the South Dakota Highway Patrol, the two riders failed to stop at a posted stop sign and hit a semi pulling triple trailers. The other riders are 54-year-old Greg Bunch, and 30-year-old Christina Logan Bettencourt, both of San Diego.

The semi driver was not injured in the crash. His name was not released because he invoked Marsy’s Law, which is designed to protect crime victims. He was reportedly assaulted following the crash.
