ATLANTIC, Iowa (AP) A motorcyclist from Pennsylvania died in a freak accident on Interstate 80 near Atlantic in western Iowa.

The Council Bluffs Nonpareil reports that a wheel from a trailer being pulled by a westbound pickup came loose, bounced into the eastbound lanes of the interstate and hit the 39-year-old motorcyclist on Thursday afternoon.

Authorities say the wheel hit Andrew Engle, of Pittsburgh. Engle was taken to a local hospital, where he died.
