A Cape Charles man died in a single vehicle accident at Milepost 20 on the Blue Ridge Parkway Sunday evening.

John M. Kohler, 35, was traveling north on the parkway at Milepost 20 around 7 p.m. when the vehicle he was operating came into a right hand curve at a high rate of speed, causing him to lose control of his vehicle.

The vehicle came to rest on its left side facing south on the parkway.

Kohler, who was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle as a result, did not survive the accident.
