Driver dies in crash on Veterans Expressway

TAMPA —A 63-year-old man died Wednesday night after being thrown from his car in a crash on the Veterans Expressway.

Raul F. Nodal of Tampa was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

At 6:52 p.m., his 2009 Dodge Challenger ran into the inside lane guardrail on the southbound expressway, just south of Waters Avenue, the FHP said.

The force of that collision pushed the car back toward the outside shoulder, where it hit a power pole and a tree, and ejected Nodal before coming to a rest on its side.

The crash was still under investigation.
