HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - A motorcyclist lost one of his legs after a crash on Interstate 95 Saturday in Hollywood, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Authorities said the motorcyclist -- Kevin Crosby, 31, of Davie -- might lose his other leg as well. 

The crash along northbound I-95 happened around 2:45 p.m. near the Sheridan Street Exit. 

The motorcycle went down and Crosby fell onto the roadway, authorities said. The motorcycle and Crosby possibly slid underneath the rear wheels of a semi-tractor trailer, according to authorities. The crash is still being investigated as to the possible semi-tractor and its involvement.

Paramedics transported Crosby to Memorial Regional Hospital, where authorities said he was in critical condition. 

The crash shut down several lanes of the highway, causing traffic delays.
