Motorcycle crash shuts down traffic on I-94 in Ann Arbor

By Chelsea Hoedl

Eastbound Interstate 94 at Jackson Road in Ann Arbor was closed Friday evening due to a motorcycle crash on the on-ramp to the highway.

The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office responded to the call, which came in at about 5:30 p.m.

Traffic is being routed around the accident until the road is cleaned up and investigation is complete.

Only one vehicle was involved in the accident, according to initial reports. The motorcyclist was transported to an area hospital by Huron Valley Ambulance.

The cause of the accident still was under investigation, officials said, but rescue crews cleared the scene at about 6 p.m.

i have 94 right in my back yard , and though you can not see the traffic , you can hear it.. keeping in mind i am NOT saying this particular biker is a speed demon. But i hear these bikers going way above the speed limit.. some might argue that ,thats just how they sound. but there are the random few that keep pace with traffic.. please drive safely biker friends..

When is something going to be done about this ridiculously dangerous on-ramp? It's bad enough for cars, let alone a motorcycle. It wouldn't break my heart if it was shut down completely.

Being a motorcyclist myself I know the dangers and pray that this riders injuries are minor and that they heal quickly.

I've had a cycle endorsement for over 25 years and I can safely say I have never entered 94 using this ramp.
