DETROIT (WJBK) -- Police are investigating a motorcycle accident that claimed the life of a 34-year-old Detroit resident.

The accident happened early Monday morning in the southbound lanes of M-39 at Grand River. Witnesses tell police two motorcycles were traveling next to each other when one went into a high speed wobble, lost control and struck a semi-trailer.

Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw says the driver, whose identity was not released, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was wearing a helmet.

It is unknown at this time if alcohol was a factor in the crash.

The freeway was closed for several hours during the initial investigation.
