WASTA, S.D. (AP) -- Authorities say a motorcycle rider who died after a crash in western South Dakota might have been struck by lightning.

The Highway Patrol says witnesses report that a bolt of lightning hit 57-year-old Kurt Stolba of Wilton, Iowa, before his motorcycle struck a guard rail on Interstate 90 in Pennington County.

The patrol says Stolba was thrown from the bike and died on the way to a Rapid City hospital late Wednesday afternoon.
