Former WWE and WCW World Champion Randy Poffo, aka "Macho Man" Randy Savage, died today in a car accident in Tampa, Florida at the age of 58.
According to an update to the story on TMZ.com, "Savage was driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler when he veered across a concrete median through oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a tree."
The site reported that Savage was transported to Largo Medical Center, where he died from his injuries. His wife Lynn, with whom he shared his one-year wedding anniversary earlier this month, was also in the car with Savage but survived with minor injuries. She was transported to a different local hospital, where she was treated.
Officials told TMZ that both Randy and Lynn were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident, and alcohol was NOT a factor. An investigation into the accident is underway.
