NEW BUFFALO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man from Shelby, Indiana, is in critical condition after crashing his motorcycle on I-94 in southwestern Michigan Saturday evening.

He was not wearing a helmet, the sheriff’s office said. Witnesses told investigators that speed may have been a factor in the crash. It is not yet known if drugs or alcohol were factors.
