A man died and an injured pregnant woman lost her baby when a motorcycle they were riding collided with a truck in east Travis County Saturday afternoon, said a spokesperson for the Travis County Sheriff’s Office. Both people are in their 20s.

It happened at about 4:15 p.m. in the 3500 block of South FM 973 just south of FM 969 while the ROT Biker Rally was going on nearby at the Travis County Expo Center.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, a 2010 Ford F150 was driving northbound on FM 973 when the truck veered into the southbound lane, hitting a 2001 Yamaha motorcycle.
