BLOOMFIELD TWP. (WWJ) – A 37-year-old  Keego Harbor man died Monday morning in a crash along I-75.

Police closed the southbound lanes of the freeway at Square Lake Road for part of the morning rush hour commute after the crash occurred at around 4 a.m.

Police said Nicholas Mario Orlandino was the only occupant of the older model Buick that somehow missed the curve and flipped over in a ditch off southbound I-75 beneath the Square Lake road overpass, police said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was hurt.

Authorities say there was a strong smell of alcohol at the scene. There was no word as to whether the victim had been wearing a seat belt.

What caused the crash is still under investigation, police said, asking any witnesses to call 248 433-7749.

The roadway re-opened at about 7:15 a.m., with traffic starting to move more freely.
