LAKE CITY, Fla. – A 59-year-old man died Tuesday morning after his Ford Explorer rolled several times on U.S. 441 about a mile north of Interstate 10 in Columbia County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said Billie Jean Singletary Jr., of DuPont, Georgia, was driving north about 5:20 a.m. when his SUV drifted over the centerline. He overcorrected, which caused the vehicle to overturn multiple times.

Singletary was taken to Shands Lake Shore Medical Center in Lake City, where he died.
