Council Bluffs police said three motorcycles were southbound on I-29 near the Ninth Avenue exit on the inside lane about 3 p.m. A light-blue vehicle exited Interstate 480 east onto I-29 south and attempted to merge to the inside lane.

The vehicle struck the second motorcycle causing it to be pushed into the median and hit the guardrail, witnesses said. The vehicle failed to stop and fled the area.

The names of the deceased and injured are being withheld pending notification of family. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Council Bluffs traffic unit at 712-328-4948.
