Truck Plows Into And Destroys iHeartRadio Tampa Sign

posted by James Burlander - 

Things are always interesting here at the Gandy Studios here in South Tampa. Earlier tonight I noticed flashing lights outside our studio window. Normally it's a simple traffic citation being given - this time I noticed BRICKS from our iHeartRadio sign scattered about the parking lot! I walked outside to see several Tampa police vehicle and a few fire trucks directly outside our iHeartRadio studios.

It looks like a white truck plowed right into our sign from Gandy Blvd.

Initial reports say the truck was traveling westbound on Gandy Blvd - and the driver may have had a medical issue. The truck allegedly swerved and veered across eastbound lanes and hit directly into our iHeartRadio sign.

Bricks are scattered across our parking lot - nearly hitting evening employees vehicles.

Saying a little prayer for the driver and his family tonight.

Here's a video I took just outside our station.

 

Here are a couple close up photos of the accident.
