DADE CITY — An Ellenton man died Monday morning after he lost control of his motorcycle and overturned on I-75, authorities said.

Donald Norman McCowan, 59, was on his 2009 Honda motorcycle riding north about 9 a.m. when traffic in front of him slowed down. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, McCowan had to swerve toward the median to avoid a collision, but lost control.

He was seriously injured when his bike overturned, the report said, and was taken to Bayfront Health Dade City, where he died.
