SUMMERSET, S.D. — A Katy, Texas, man died as a result of injuries sustained in a three-vehicle crash on Thursday, July 14, in Summerset.

Preliminary crash information indicates that a 2019 Harley Davidson Tri-Glide Ultra motorcycle was westbound on Interstate 90 when it slowed down to avoid a large box that had fallen from a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado pickup. The motorcycle was rear-ended by a GMC Sierra pickup which was pulling a utility trailer.

The crash occurred at approximately 9:29 a.m. near mile marker 50 on Interstate 90, within the city limits of Summerset.

Gary Holcombe, the 66-year-old motorcycle driver, was thrown from the motorcycle and landed in the north ditch of the interstate. He was not wearing a helmet and was airlifted to a Rapid City hospital. He died there Tuesday, July 20.

Neither of the male pickup drivers — Anthony Schulz, 64, of Wall in the GMC Sierra nor Shane Devine, 49, of Piedmont in the Chevy Silverado — were injured. Charges are pending against both.


South Dakota’s Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. The Highway Patrol is an agency of the South Dakota Department of Public Safety.
