According to the FHP, witnesses said the motorcyclist was weaving in and out of traffic on the main line of I-4 east and lost control of her bike as she tried to avoid a vehicle that was slowing down. The motorcycle struck a guardrail that separates the main line of I-4 with the express lanes, troopers said.

The woman was taken to a hospital in critical condition, the FHP said.

All I-4 east and express lanes were closed in the area, but all eastbound lanes, except the right express lane, were later reopened.
