Police are looking for the motorcyclist who ditched his bike after riding through curing concrete on I-69 Monday.

Crews were fixing sections of the highway in Bath Township, just west of the Webster Road exit around 6:45 p.m Monday when the motorcyclist drove through a patch of freshly poured concrete in a closed off lane. Police say the man had reportedly been swerving in and out of the closed off area to avoid traffic.

The rider then ditched his motorcycle and took off on foot towards Chandler Road. Photos released by MDOT show the motorcycle covered in concrete, and the streak he left in the highway.

The motorcycle was impounded. The Bath Township Police Department says the rider faces civil fines for disregarding traffic cones, and a possible criminal charge for leaving the scene of an accident.

No road crew workers were injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Bath Township Police Department.
