The Iowa State Patrol says two motorcycles collided Saturday night in Calhoun County, killing one of the riders and leaving the other badly hurt. The victim is 19-year-old Jon Spencer of Fort Dodge. Reportedly, a southbound 2008 Kawasaki Ninja operated by 20-year-old Jake Glesney, also of Fort Dodge, collided with the rear end of a southbound 2007 Honda Shadow motorcycle operated by Spencer.

Both drivers were ejected from their motorcycles. Spencer was transported to a Pocahontas hospital where he was pronounced dead of his injuries. Glesney was transported from a Lake City hospital to an Omaha medical facility with life-threatening injuries.
