A driver was killed this morning after he lost control of his SUV and struck a utility pole in Town ’N Country.
Hillsborough County deputies say the unidentified driver was traveling northbound on Memorial Highway, south of Bay Pointe Drive, just before 11 a.m. when he lost control, left the roadway and struck a utility pole.
The driver exited the SUV and collapsed, deputies say. Paramedics performed CPR, and he was pronounced dead at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
Only one northbound lane is closed, deputies say, but additional lanes may be closed while TECO crews replace the pole.
