The Florida Highway Patrol has identified the man who died in a fatal car crash on Wednesday night as 85-year-old Daniel Ianoale of Clearwater.
Investigators said Ianoale was northbound, leaving the Derby Lane race track about 8:30 p.m., when he pulled in front of a 1991 Chevrolet pickup truck, eastbound on Gandy Boulevard.
The pickup was traveling about 45 mph when it collided with Ianoale's Pontiac, the FHP said. Ianoale, of 2266 Gulf to Bay Blvd. No. 318, died at the scene, the FHP said.
The driver of the other truck, Charles Devoid, 50, of Tampa, was taken to Bayfront Medical Center. The hospital would not release information on his condition Thursday.
The FHP continues its investigation.
