According to FHP, 38-year-old Joel Matthew Shubert was riding his Suzuki motorcycle southbound on I-275 at 11:37 p.m. when he lost control of the vehicle. He collided into the center barrier wall that separates the north- and southbound lanes. Shubert was ejected from the motorcycle and over the barrier into northbound traffic.
