JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - Rock County authorities have been looking for an SUV that struck and killed two motorcyclists near Janesville, and then drove away.
It happened around 8 p.m. Sunday on Highway 14.
Sheriff's deputies said five motorcycles were riding behind a vehicle that swerved to avoid the oncoming SUV that drove across the center line. It struck the two bikers who were leading the group.
