Shaw said the crash happened at about 6:40 a.m.

Investigators believe the driver of a pickup was turning northbound onto the Lodge from westbound I-94  “but for some reason left the exit ramp and struck the M-10 overpass,” Shaw said.

The man was the only occupant of the vehicle, he said, and no other injuries were reported.

Police are awaiting results of a toxicology test to determine whether the motorist had a medical issue or if he drove off the ramp for some other reason, Shaw said.
