An Ypsilanti man died and a woman was injured in a rollover crash on Interstate 94 near Stone School Road in Ann Arbor early Thursday morning, officials said.
Jeffrey Jerome Robinson, 22 of Ypsilanti, died after being thrown out the rear window of the 2007 Ford Focus he was driving east on Interstate 94, said Sgt. Chris Pascoe of the Michigan State Police. Robinson lost control of the vehicle and it rolled over in the eastbound lanes just west of Platt Road about 2:30 a.m., Pascoe said. Robinson was pronounced dead at the scene.
Huron Valley Ambulance paramedics took his passenger, a 21-year-old Ypsilanti woman, to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Superior Township. She was in stable condition Thursday morning, Pascoe said.
State Police continue to investigate the crash. It’s not clear what caused Robinson to lose control of the car, Pascoe said.
Alcohol is suspected of contributing to the crash, state police said in a news release. Police also said "lack of seatbelt use" is suspected of contributing to the death of the driver.
