One person was killed, another injured, when the motorcycle they were riding crashed Sunday morning north of Crescent in southwest Iowa’s Pottawattamie County. Sheriff Jeff Danker says 55-year-old Kenneth Tomford and 48-year-old Sandra Tomford, both of Council Bluffs, were riding a 2002 Honda motorcycle on northbound Old Lincoln Highway near the intersection of Coldwater Avenue, when the cycle went out of control at about 9:15 AM and entered the east ditch.
Kenneth Tomford was taken by Life Flight helicopter to the University of Nebraska Medical Center, where he died from his injuries. Sandra Tomford was taken by ambulance to an area hospital where she was treated for broken bones. Her injuries were not considered to be life threatening. Neither rider was wearing a helmet.
