A 29–year–old Lithonia man died early Sunday morning in a single car wreck on Interstate 20.

According to Georgia State Patrol reports, Kortez N. Mebane died after the vehicle he was driving west on Interstate 20 near the 108 mile marker left the road.

Reports state that Mebane’s vehicle travelled off the south side of the interstate and then overcorrected attempting to get the vehicle back onto the roadway.

The vehicle crossed the centerline and Mebane apparently overcorrected a second time and the vehicle rotated off the south shoulder of the roadway.

The vehicle  then overturned onto its right side and, reports state struck a tree with the top of the vehicle.

The vehicle was then engulfed in flames.

The incident occurred at approximately 2:15 a.m.
