STURGIS, S.D. -

Three people have now died in crashes related to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The Highway Patrol says a 63-year-old man died about midday Tuesday after his motorcycle went off a road on a curve west of Piedmont, hit a pole and rolled. He wasn't immediately identified.

Two other fatalities happened Saturday --one involving a motorcycle and the other a utility terrain vehicle.

The annual event in South Dakota's Black Hills draws hundreds of thousands of people from around the world. This year's rally started last Friday and runs through Sunday.

The state Transportation Department says that traffic during the first five days of the rally was up nearly 4 percent compared to last year.
