Dunedin man dies after car careens into wall in Oldsmar

OLDSMAR — A man who was killed Monday night after crashing into a wall on State Road 580 was identified as John J. Mrozinski, 51, of Dunedin.

Mrozinski was driving a 1989 Honda Accord westbound when he crashed just east of Forest Lake Boulevard at about 8:20 p.m.

His car veered onto a grassy median, clipped a palm tree, crossed both eastbound lanes of SR 580, jumped a curb and hit a concrete wall, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.

A witness ran over, saw Mrozinski unconscious and called 911, deputies said.

Mrozinski was taken to Mease Countryside Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9 p.m. No cause has been determined, though deputies say alcohol is not suspected.
