ASHBURN -- A single-car accident resulted in the death of a Florida man Saturday.

John Edward Lowell of Melbourne, Fla., died around 11:50 a.m. Saturday after the car he was riding in flipped several times on Interstate 75, two-tenths of a mile south of Exit 82. Lowell was a passenger in a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer driven by his wife, Marjorie R. Lowell of Melbourne.

According to an Ashburn Police Department report, the Lowells were traveling north on the Interstate and attempted to cross over from the express lane to the slow lane, but Marjorie Lowell lost control of the vehicle.

The Mercury traveled about 243 feet either on its side or rolling. The vehicle toppled over several times before leaving the roadway and striking a group of pine trees.

The Mercury came to a rest on its side, facing south, after the couple had been traveling north.

No charges were filed after the accident.
