Motorcycle rallies tainted by accidents

This has been a deadly season for bikers in Myrtle Beach. Four motorcyclists died in last week's Atlantic Beach Bikefest. Last year, only one person died during the four day festival.

Nine motorcyclists died in the Grand Strand during the 10 day Carolina Harley Davidson bike rally that ended on May 18th. Officials say many of those involved in the accidents were not wearing helmets. South Carolina law does not require riders older than 21 to wear helmets.
