Former pro wrestling star Macho Man Randy Savage died Friday in a car accident in Tampa, Fla., TMZ reported. He was 58. The Florida Highway Patrol told TMZ that Savage was driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler when he veered across the center median and struck a tree. He did not hit any oncoming vehicles. Savage’s brother, Lanny Poffo, told TMZ the wrestling legend suffered a heart attack while behind the wheel.
Savage died of his injuries at Largo Medical Center, TMZ reported. Savage’s wife, Lynn, was a passenger in the vehicle and suffered minor injuries, authorities said. She was treated at a separate hospital.
According to the report, both Savage and his wife were wearing seatbelts, and police say alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
