The Florida Highway Patrol said a 40-year-old Melrose man died in a single vehicle accident early Thursday morning.

Jason Duane Shelton was driving a 2005 GMC Sierra southbound on S.R. 21, about one-half mile north of Perry Road just after midnight.  Perry Road is about one mile north of Baden Powell Road.

According to an FHP report, The Sierra began to veer to the left of the road and rotate counterclockwise.  It then crossed the center line, left the roadway on the northbound side and struck a utility pole.  Shelton was not wearing a seat belt.
