IRENE (AP) - The South Dakota Highway Patrol has released the name of a man who died after hitting a deer with a motorcycle near Irene.

Authorities have identified the driver as 55-year-old Scot Brockmueller of Irene.

The Highway Patrol says Brockmueller tried to avoid the deer while riding Saturday, but they collided. He and 59-year-old Vickie Brockmueller were thrown from the motorcycle.

The driver died at the scene, while Vickie Brockmueller received serious injuries that were not a threat to her life. A helicopter transported her to a Sioux Falls hospital.

The Highway Patrol says the two victims weren't wearing helmets. The crash remains under investigation.
