CASS COUNTY, Iowa — A trip to escort a veteran’s body home ended with one person dead and three others injured.

The accident happened Saturday on Interstate 80 near Atlantic.

A group of motorcyclists were traveling together when a car in the right westbound lane swerved into the left lane to avoid a stock trailer that was on the right shoulder. The car hit one of the motorcycles, which crashed in the left lane. Another motorcycle, driven by 38-year-old Ryan Lossing from Omaha, tried to avoid the collision but crashed. Lossing was thrown into the path of a semi and killed.

Three others were injured including Lossing’s wife Christina.
