The Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office says 26-year old Adam Blake, of Omaha, died when the 2006 Suzuki he was riding, struck the rear of a livestock trailer in rural northwestern Pottawattamie County Thursday evening.
The accident happened at around 7:50 pm as a southbound pickup driven by 19-year old Joseph Jensen, of Neola, was pulling an empty livestock trailer, and making a left turn off of County Road L-34 onto Whippoorwill Road, when the southbound cycle collided with the trailer.
Blake died at the scene. The accident remains under investigation.
