  • SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota motorcyclist who police say was killed by a speeding, texting driver is being mourned as a man who "brought people together."
    Philip Sorensen died Thursday from injuries he suffered when he hit by a car driven by Brent O'Neal of Sioux Falls.
    Police say O'Neal was driving too fast and speeding in central Sioux Falls when he hit four vehicles and a light pole. He fled on foot and was captured shortly afterward.
    Friends of Sorensen held a candlelight vigil Thursday night at the intersection where Sorensen was killed.
    Dave Storer was Sorensen's landlord.
    He says Sorensen was a guy you'd trust to take care of your home and pets.
    Sorensen's sister Megan says her brother was a tinkerer who could "build anything out of something."
