Two people were taken to the hospital after a motorcycle crash in Bremer County Saturday night (Oct. 21, 2017).

The Iowa State Patrol said Todd Smith of Reinbeck and his passenger, Suzy Thorne of Cedar Falls, were both injured in the accident. They were taken to a Waterloo hospital for treatment.

The crash happened around 8 p.m. on rain-soaked U.S. Highway 63 between the Wapsipinicon River bridge and Larrabee Ave., northwest of Frederika.

According to state troopers, it was raining at the time of the accident. Smith was driving the motorcycle when it went off the edge the pavement, causing him to lose control. Smith and Thorne were both thrown from the motorcycle.

The Iowa State Patrol said neither Smith and Thorne had helmets on, but both were wearing leather coats and chaps.

The accident remains under investigation.
