LITTLE SIOUX, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa State Patrol says it may take several weeks to complete an investigation into the head-on crash that killed four motorcyclists on Interstate 29 in western Iowa.

Three men from Iowa and one from Nebraska were killed Monday evening when a pickup crossed the center line in a construction zone and collided with their motorcycles.

The patrol identifies the victims as 62-year-old Dennis Chaney and 49-year-old Dale Aspedon, both of Glenwood, Iowa; 62-year-old Steven Benscoter of Pacific Junction, Iowa; and 48-year-old Jay Bock of Omaha, Neb.

Patrol Lt. Brad Pollard says only Bock was wearing a helmet. The 21-year-old Nebraska man driving the pickup was treated for minor injuries.

The patrol says the four motorcyclists were returning from Sturgis, S.D., site of a huge annual motorcycle rally.
