A 36-year old motorcyclist is dead after police say he crashed into a protective wall and fencing on the eastbound I-696 overpass at 11 Mile Road.
Roseville police say the 36-year old Warren man suffered massive head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash after midnight Tuesday. His passenger, a 24-year old woman from St. Clair Shores, is hospitalized with critical head injuries.
Officers say neither the driver nor his passenger were wearing helmets.
