Lusby man killed near Lothian as van leaves road, hits tree

A Pepco employee was killed Tuesday afternoon when the company van he was driving veered off southbound Route 4 near Lothian and smashed into a tree, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

Allan Edward Foxwell, 51, was returning from work to his home in Lusby, Calvert County, when he lost control of the 1998 Ford Econoline van, police said. The van traveled about 130 feet off the road before striking the tree.

There was no evidence that he had been speeding or tried to brake before the accident, police said, and he was wearing his seatbelt.

Foxwell was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after the 2:10 p.m. accident, police said.
