Weather cancels W.Va. motorcycle run for slain sheriff

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Stiff winds and rain have forced the cancellation of the Sheriff Eugene Crum Memorial Poker Run.

Organizers say they'll reschedule the memorial ride, which was to occur Sunday.

The memorial on wheels was to pass through Williamson, where the Mingo County lawman was fatally shot on April 3 as he sat in his cruiser eating lunch.

The procession was also to pass through Crum's hometown of Taylorville.

Organizers expected more than 200 motorcycles to participate in the memorial motorcycle ride.

The ride was part of a three-day Rally in the Valley motorcycle gathering that began Friday.
