UPDATE: Motorcycle crash on Innerbelt Bridge closes I-90 eastbound

CLEVELAND - A crash seriously injured two on the Innerbelt Bridge and closed Interstate 90 in both directions for nearly four hours early Monday.

Cleveland police say two people — a 25-year-old male and a 26-year-old female — were on one motorcycle when the male driver lost control of the motorcycle and struck the median barrier. Both were thrown from the motorcycle, and both were taken to the MetroHealth Medical Center.

Speed appeared to be a contributing factor, Cleveland Police said.

An SUV was towed from the scene.

Around 6:15 a.m., police reopened all lanes of I-90.
