Officials say a motorcycle driven by 38-year old Michael Iwan Carter collided with a car driven by 52-year old Antoni0 Zambrano, of Council Bluffs, as Zambrano was pulling away from a stop sign at the intersection of 19th Street and 5th Avenue, in Council Bluffs.

Zambrano and a passenger in his vehicle refused treatment at the scene. The accident remains under investigation.
