Detectives are investigating a fatal accident on the JFK Causeway that resulted in one man being decapitated. Crews shut down lanes going westbound for over an hour while they worked to clear the scene.

The accident took place shortly after midnight Thursday. Detectives say a man was speeding down the causeway in his motorcycle before losing control. Witnesses said they saw the man's body fly into the water.

Several body parts were discovered on the scene

On Thursday afternoon, the Nueces County Medical Examiner's Office identified the victim as 35-year-old Jayson Roerich.
