BLACK HAWK COUNTY (KWWL) -

UPDATE:  Authorities say speed may have contributed to a double-fatal crash Wednesday in Black Hawk County, near Raymond.

Investigators say 62-year-old Bill Price of Waterloo was not wearing his seat belt when he crossed the center line in the 2009 Nissan Altima he was driving, and he hit 60-year-old Dale Weber of Jesup.

Weber was riding a motorcycle and on his way to work.

Authorities are not sure whether he was wearing a helmet during the crash, even though a helmet was located at the scene.

Authorities say Price was in Chicago the night before for an AC/DC concert. 

He dropped a friend off at their home in Waterloo around 4:00 a.m., and then he went home to change his shoes.

At last word, investigators are trying to understand why he left his home, and why he was driving in the Jesup area.

If you have any information or saw Price driving Wednesday morning, please call 319-291-2587.

A toxicology report has been ordered to determine whether alcohol contributed to the crash, but Black Hawk County authorities say they do not believe alcohol was a factor.
