PHOENIX -- A man's body has been found on southbound Interstate 17 at the Loop 101 Tuesday morning, closing that portion of the interstate in north Phoenix for a few hours, authorities said.

The body was below a car parked on the ramp from eastbound Loop 101 to northbound I-17.

It's not clear whether the man fell or jumped but authorities said there's no indication of foul play.

The closure occurred roughly where a young man was killed several hours earlier when he lost control of his motorcycle on a ramp from I-17 to Loop 101.

Authorities said that the motorcyclist fell several hundred feet onto Loop 101.
