Sad news out of Clearwater Florida
The professional wrestler known as Randy “Macho Man” Savage has died in a car crash in Florida.
The Florida Highway Patrol says in a crash report that the 58-year-old former wrestler—whose legal name is Randy Mario Poffo—was driving a Jeep Wrangler when he lost control in Pinellas County around 9:25 a.m. The Jeep veered over the raised concrete median divider, crossed over the eastbound lanes and collided head-on with a tree.
Police say he may have suffered a “medical event” before the accident, but the report did not elaborate, and it said officials would need to perform an autopsy to know for sure.
