SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say two people from Iowa were killed in a motorcycle crash on a Florida highway.

The Bradenton Herald reports that the crash occurred Friday morning on Interstate 75 near Sarasota.

Florida Highway Patrol says 59-year-old Bruce Petrezlka was riding his Honda Goldwing north on I-75 when he veered off the road and into a wooded area. The bike hit a tree, killing Petrezlka and his passenger, 56-year-old Virginia Petrezlka.

It wasn't clear what caused the motorcycle to leave the roadway.
