Macho Man's Car Accident -- The WRECKAGE Video

5/20/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained footage of Macho Man Randy Savage's car -- after it slammed into a tree this morning in Florida.

Randy Savage Car Accident Video
As we previously reported, Macho Man suffered a heart attack while he was behind the wheel around 9:25 AM ... and lost control of his car -- veering across the concrete median into oncoming traffic ... and straight into a tree.

Randy died, but it's unclear whether it was the result of the heart attack, the collision, or a combination of both.

Thanks to MyFoxTampa for the heads up.

If he was driving the speed limit, had a seat belt on and the airbag deployed, he did not die from the collision. He died from long term steroid abuse.

hopefully the heart attack got him before he could feel the impact of the accident. Just a terrible thing to happen to anyone but i grew up as a kid watching Macho Man and being a huge wrestling fan when i was little. Deinately a sad day.

Hopefully Miss Elizabeth helped him walk through the gates of heaven to the sounds of his classic entrance music.

There is no way he died due to the impact of that crash. It had to be the heart attack.

YAK........Sadly I think you hit the nail on the head, long term steroid use!!
If you look at the picture you can see the front end damage was not overly significant. In addition his wife only had minor injuries.

I used to work with his brother Lanny in Tampa. He was sweetest most mild mannered guy you ever wanted to know and he only ever had nice things to say about his brother Randy.

All those years of roids I am sure weakened his heart and made it a lot 'older' than it should have been. But he was a good man and he will be missed.

RIP Randy...and my heart felt condolences to Lanny and Randy's new wife.

You at TMZ are F-ing retards. Ninja Warrior is NOTHING like American Gladiators. NW deserves a lot more respect than that. Americans love to humiliate and, for the most part, are just plain stupid. Japan celebrates and respects top physical capacity. Americans are retarded. Just look at this site.

Not a wrestling fan here. But my dad was--heart and soul. So sorry to hear of the Macho Man's passing. Whatever the reason, may he rest in peace. Hope he and my dad are exchanging "wrastling" stories as we speak...

I'm an emt and I can say from what I've seen the damage to the car is minimal. There is no damage to the front windshield or even any frame damage to the cab itself. If he hadn't been strapped in there would be damage to the window. He was to big of a guy to go under the dash and the car wasn't travelling fast enough, as evident by the damage. It isn't unheard of to have a MI in the car and when compounded by the accident it can be more than the heart can handle. Very sad indeed.

Steroids can raise your cholesterol but they do not cause heart attacks.
