CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- 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.

The report confirms that the driver was the pro wrestler known
as Randy Savage.

A woman in the vehicle suffered minor injuries.
