MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) - A 21-year-old man from Holly has died after he drove around barricades and plunged off an interstate overpass in Oakland County.

State police say the pickup truck driven by Cody Petzold crashed onto 12 Mile Road from the Interstate 75 overpass in Madison Heights. A passenger in the pickup was injured when the vehicle landed upside down early Friday.

The interstate entrance ramp has been closed due to construction. Part of the overpass is being rebuilt because of an accident in October.

WXYZ-TV reports that Petzold was a senior at Oakland University.

The school said Friday in a statement that Petzold “was a highly regarded scholar and student leader.”
