Maryland State Police are investigating a deadly motorcycle crash that took place in Frederick County on Memorial Day evening.

It happened after 8 p.m. on westbound I-70 just, prior to Rt.75 - Green Valley Road.

The collision prompted all westbound lanes to close, forcing traffic to detour onto alternate routes while police investigated.

It's unclear if other vehicles were involved and if anyone else was injured.

Early Monday morning, another person died after overturning their SUV around the same location.
