ARCHDALE, N.C. — A man died after his car flipped and ignited on Interstate 85 in Guilford County, according to Highway Patrol

At about 11:10 a.m. Monday, troopers responded to a wreck on I-85 north, near I-74, in Guilford County.

Troopers believe 48-year-old Michael Juwan Rochelle, of Greensboro, was driving in the far right lane of I-85 when he drove off the road to the right, hit a guardrail and flipped several times.
