Detroit — A Troy man died at the scene of a single-vehicle accident after losing control of his 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier while traveling towards Detroit Wednesday evening.

Somerset County Sheriff Barry Delong said John C. Klein, 48, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which occurred Wednesday, Dec. 5, at about 6:17 p.m.

Delong said Klein was traveling from Troy toward Detroit on Troy Road when he lost control of his vehicle on a curve, rolled several times and was ejected. Klein was the only occupant in the vehicle at the time of the accident, Delong said.

It appears speed may have been a factor in the crash, which is still under investigation.

The vehicle was totaled as a result of the accident, Delong said.
