3 deaths at ROT so far

First day claims it's first victim.

Man falls off motorcycle to his death at I-35 flyover | kvue.com Austin

"AUSTIN -- Austin police are investigating a fatal accident involving a motorcycle.

The accident happened on the flyover from I-35 southbound to Highway 290. The accident happened shortly after 10 a.m. Friday.

According to Austin police, a 50-year-old male was on the motorcycle. He hit the rail on the overpass, lost control of the motorcycle and fell 30 feet to the ground below.

The investigation into what caused the accident is ongoing."

-------------------------------------------

Sadly, 2 more riders have been killed today, which now ties with last years rally with 3 deaths.

Not much known about the second rider except it happened on 2222.

Motorcyclist pronounced dead following overnight crash - YNN - Your News Now

---------------------------------------

i've heard officially 15 crashes, but i would guess alot more unreported crashes

I know of plenty of people who went and simply did not attend the over priced "Rally" site.
