DETROIT (WJBK) -

Police say a 40-year-old Detroit man has died in a single vehicle accident along I-96 on the city's west side.

Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw says the victim attempted to avoid empty boxes in the eastbound lanes of I-96 just after 7 a.m. Monday when he lost control and struck the median wall at Schaefer Highway.

Shaw says the vehicle rolled onto its roof and slid across the freeway, killing the driver, whose name was not released.

Shaw says the driver was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The local lanes were closed for several hours during the investigation.
