DETROIT — A Troy man was killed Wednesday night when his vehicle rolled over several times after it left Troy Road.

John C. Klein, 48, was driving his 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier about 6:15 p.m. when he apparently lost control on a curve, according to Detective Lt. Carl E. Gottardi II of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department on Thursday.

Klein was ejected from the vehicle, Gottardi said. Klein was alone in the car at the time and no other vehicle was involved. Klein was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Gottardi

The car was destroyed in the accident.

The accident is still under investigation and it appears that speed may be a factor in the accident, according to Gottardi.
