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.
