Pro wrestler Randy “Macho Man” Savage, 58, was killed Friday morning in Florida when the Jeep he was driving jumped a median and hit a tree, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Savage, whose real name is Randy Poffo, and his wife, 56, who lived in Seminole, Florida, were both in the car, officials said.

An investigation is under way, but a Highway Patrol report said that Ralph Poffo “lost control” of his 2009 Jeep Wrangler for “unknown reasons” as it was traveling westbound on Florida State Route 694 near 113th Street North in Pinellas County. His vehicle “traveled over the raised concrete median divider, crossed the eastbound lanes of SR-694, over the outside curb and collided head-on with a tree,” the report said.

His wife was in the passenger seat and was injured, officials said. Officials could not confirm the cause of Poffo’s death.
