A motorcyclist was killed when a tire came off of a trailer and hit him on Interstate 80 in Cass County, Iowa Thursday afternoon.

The Iowa State Patrol says 39-year-old Andrew Engle of Pittsburgh was westbound near Marne, west of Atlantic, when the tire flew off an eastbound trailer being pulled by a truck and bounced into Engle just before 4:30 p.m. He was taken to Cass County Memorial Hospital in Atlantic, but later died.

The truck driver, 40-year-old Scott Farmer of Cheyenne, Wyoming, was not injured. No citations were issued.
