A 35-year-old Murfreesboro man lost his life last Monday night (Aug. 10) in a two-vehicle accident on U.S. 70S at Manus Town Road.
Walter M. "Mike" Lowe Jr. died in the 10:36 p.m. collision, said Sgt. Greg Tramel of the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
Lowe, driving a 1990 Ford Econoline van, was traveling east on state Route 281 when he failed to yield the right of way to a 2012 Toyota sedan driven by Tyler L. England, 30, of Murfreesboro.
England was traveling south on U.S. 70S and he struck Lowe's van in the driver's side door, Tramel reported. Wearing a seat belt, England was not injured in the accident.
The collision caused the Lowe's van to spin clockwise and overturn onto its side, partially ejecting the driver. Lowe was not wearing a seat belt.
Michael Anthony Jordan, 47, of Gaston SC, was a passenger in Lowe's van. Wearing a seat belt, Jordan was not injured.
Lowe was a native of Canandaigua, NY. He was owner of Go Lowe Remodeling.
Lowe is survived by his wife, Lisa Lowe, daughter, Amber Lowe of Murfreesboro, half brothers, James and Adam Smith, stepson, David Peeler, father-in-law and mother-in-law, Ed and Sharon Hill.
