ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Florida Highway Patrol says the eastbound lanes of Interstate 4 have reopened following a fatal motorcycle crash near Mile Marker 67.
The crash happened Tuesday morning at Osceola Parkway, near the Orange and Osceola county line. Troopers say a passenger vehicle apparently ran over a piece of tire tread in the road, which then struck the motorcycle driver. He was knocked off the bike and run over by a passing vehicle. That vehicle didn't stop and troopers are looking for the driver.
The interstate was closed for several hours, reopening shortly before 11 a.m.
The name of the 47-year-old motorcycle driver hasn't been released.
