TAMPA — A 35-year-old Tampa man has died at a hospital from injuries he received when the pickup truck he was driving struck a concrete barrier Thursday morning on the elevated segment of the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Tampa police and state troopers found the man unresponsive but revived him, in part by administering Narcan — an overdose antidote drug carried by officers.
The man was headed east on the expressway in a Toyota Tacoma when he lost control about 6:25 a.m. just east of 50th Street, entered the left shoulder and crashed into the concrete barrier, the Highway Patrol said.
Officers and troopers administered Narcan and used CPR and a defibrillation device to revive the man before emergency medical personnel arrived. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:50 p.m. Thursday.
The Highway Patrol did not release the man’s name.
