First Squad detectives are investigating a single-car crash in North Lindenhurst early Friday in which the driver was ejected and killed, Suffolk County police said.

Rommiek Perry, 33, of Central Islip, was driving alone east on Sunrise Highway at about 3:30 a.m. when he was ejected from a 2007 Suzuki, police said.

Police said Perry was apparently driving at a "high rate of speed" when his car hit a guard rail and overturned near Fulton Avenue.

He was taken by the North Lindenhurst Fire Department to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip where he was pronounced dead.

Police said their investigation is continuing and that the vehicle was impounded for a safety inspection.

Police said the eastbound roadway was closed between North Delaware Avenue and North Greene Avenue for investigation by Crime Scene Unit detectives. The road reopened about 8 a.m.

Anyone with more information can call the First Squad at 631-854-8152.
