The freeway was closed for the investigation. Shaw is warning all drivers to slow down, especially those on two wheels.

"We know that excessive speed is causing a lot of the preventable crashes we are seeing in Metro Detroit. If you operate a motorcycle at excessive speed and crash the outcome can be far worse as you are without protection. Please slow down!"
