Harley Rider Killed as Thousands Gather For 105th Anniversary Celebration

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A traffic accident killed a motorcycle rider in Milwaukee as tens of thousands of Harley-Davidson enthusiasts gathered in the city for the company's 105th anniversary celebration.

Police Sergeant Mark Stanmeyer says four motorcyclists were approaching an east side intersection yesterday afternoon when a 61-year-old Milwaukee woman turned her car too wide and struck one of the motorcycles, killing the rider.

He says the woman was arrested on suspicion of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

Stanmeyer says the man's identity hasn't been released. He was not wearing a helmet.
