A 40-year old Detroit man is dead after an accident Friday afternoon on westbound I-96 that had traffic backed up for a couple miles.

Michigan State Police say the man was thrown out of his SUV after it hit the median wall near Grand River Avenue. 
Police say the driver wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.  Roads were slippery in the area, according to troopers.

An investigation is ongoing.

Only one lane of westbound I-96 was open as emergency crews cleared the scene.  All lanes have re-opened.
