STURGIS, S.D. (AP) — A spokeswoman for a South Dakota campground that hosts hordes of visitors during the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally says four people were hurt when a motorcyclist performing a stunt accidentally drove into a crowd.
Buffalo Chip Campground spokeswoman Nyla Griffith tells the Rapid City Journal (http://bit.ly/2aFutTu ) the accident happened around 9:45 p.m. Sunday between performances by Lita Ford and Kid Rock. She says a rider was performing a burn out between shows when he lost control and went off stage.
Griffith says four people were treated on the scene and were believed to have been taken to a hospital. The extent of their injuries wasn't immediately clear.
This year's annual Sturgis rally in western South Dakota's Black Hills kicks off Monday. A record 739,000 people attended last year.
