EASTPOINTE, Mich. (AP) - State police say a speeding motorcyclist who refused to pull over on Interstate 94 in suburban Detroit struck a pickup truck, killing himself and setting both vehicles afire.

DiPietro says the motorcyclist had a felony warrant. Two people in the pickup sustained minor injuries.

Michigan authorities say crashes killed four other motorcyclists Saturday.
