EMMETT TOWNSHIP (WKZO) --State Police are investigating a motorcycle crash on I-94 near 11-mile that sent a man to the hospital with a bad case of road rash and other injuries mid-afternoon on Saturday.
Troopers say it appears the man lost control of the bike on the rain slickened pavement, fell off the bike and slid for some distance before coming to a rest near the median.
They say he was eastbound in Emmett Township when it happened, causing traffic to back up some distance. The Interstate was closed for nearly two hours.
He was airlifted to the hospital for treatment.
