ELKADER, Iowa (AP) - A motorcyclist has died in a crash with a farm tractor on a northeastern Iowa highway, authorities said.

The Iowa State Patrol said the crash happened just before 6:30 p.m. Saturday when David Bushaw, 50, of Oelwein, was traveling westbound on Clayton Road and crossed the center line when he entered a curve in the highway.

Bushaw’s motorcycle encountered the tractor in the eastbound lanes, colliding head-on with it, the patrol said.

Bushaw died at the scene. Investigators said the 18-year-old driver of the tractor was not hurt.
