The police report on the death of Randall Mario Poffo aka Randy Savage lists Savage as the driver of a 2009 Jeep Wranger on State Road 694 in Seminole, FL, near Tampa. He was just west of the intersection of 113th St. North, when after a "medical event" (believed to be a heart attack, but can't be confirmed until the autopsy), he lost control of the vehicle. The jeep traveled over the raised concrete median divider, crossed over the eastbound lanes of State Road 694, over the outside curb, and collided head-on with a tree.
Savage was transported to Largo Medical Center where he passed away from injuries in the accident. Barbara Lynn Poffo, 56, his wife, remains at Bayfront Hospital with minor injuries.
