WENTZVILLE, Mo. (AP) — Two motorcyclists are dead after their motorcycles were involved in an accident with a school bus in the eastern Missouri town of Wentzville.

The accident happened just before 7 a.m. Tuesday on Route A, near the intersection of U.S. 61. The Missouri State Highway Patrol identified the victims as 43-year-old Matthew Adam of Bowling Green and 22-year-old Jacob Boedeker of Warrenton.
