Two people were seriously hurt in a crash that held up traffic on I-481 Thursday evening.

Onondaga County Sheriff's deputies say a motorcyclist lost control at about 4:00pm as he approached the ramp from 481 to 81 in Cicero. Both he and a passenger were thrown several feet off the bike and into the median.

Deputies say driver is a man in his 40s. The passenger is a woman in her 20s. Both of them were taken to University Hospital. Right now we don't know much about their injuries, but deputies say they are very serious.

So far, investigators have not released the names of either the driver or the passenger.
