Name released in fatal accident near Volin, SD

A motorcyclist suffered fatal injuries Tuesday in a two-vehicle crash near Volin, SD.

Preliminary crash information indicates Gordon J. Sorensen, the 65-year-old male driver of a 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling east on 301st Street near 446th Avenue behind a semi tractor/trailer. A septic tanker truck, driven by Donald E. Robinson, was traveling the same direction and was in front of the semi. The septic tanker truck slowed down to turn north into a field. Sorensen attempted to pass the semi and struck the side of the septic tanker truck as it was turning into the field. Sorensen was thrown from his motorcycle and died at the scene as a result of his injuries. He was not wearing a helmet.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. All information released so far is only preliminary.

The Highway Patrol is an agency of the South Dakota Department of Public Safety.
