TMZ spoke with Randy’s brother, Lanny Poffo, who tells us the wrestling legend suffered a heart attack while he was behind the wheel around 9:25 AM … and lost control of his vehicle. According to Florida Highway Patrol, Savage was driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler when he veered across a concrete median — through oncoming traffic and “collided head-on with a tree.”
Savage’s wife was a passenger in the vehicle during the collision — but survived with “minor injuries.” She was transported to a different local hospital where she was treated.
Earlier this month, Savage celebrated his 1-year anniversary with his new wife Lynn.
Savage was 58.
