(S.D.)-Bets Are On To Guess How Many People Will Die At The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally
(RAPID CITY)- (AP) - Members of a Black Hills family and their friends say they mean no harm with a betting pool they run on how many bikers will die during the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
This year, 12 people put in $5 each, with the winner pocketing $60.
Sixty-two-year-old Carol Landrum says that no one wants anyone to die, but fatalities are a fact of life at the rally that draws hundreds of thousands of bikers to the Black Hills each year. She says the pool isn't meant to be malicious.
The pool started seven years ago based on an idea from a friend of Landrum's husband. She says that friend later died in a motorcycle accident.
