Speed kills. And sometimes, it maims. 

A motorcyclist who police say was driving around 100 mph on I-75 lost control of his bike, hit a guardrail and amputated his own left foot. 

The Detroit News reports the accident happened near the Grange Hall Road exit in northern Oakland County Friday afternoon:

The man was believed to be under the influence of alcohol, state police said. A search warrant was requested to obtain a blood sample.

"This investigation is continuing. Again, excessive speed and impaired driving is the cause of this crash," MSP tweeted. "While he survived the crash, his life will never be the same. Please drive Michigan safely this weekend."
