A Tampa man died after he lost control of his vehicle then wrecked.
Timothy Lovejoy, 32, of Tampa, was traveling at a high rate of speed on Interstate 4 at about 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, when he lost control of his vehicle then crashed into two other vehicles.
Lovejoy lost control of his 2006 Saturn around the eastbound Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard exit. He entered the center grass median and then re-entered the road which caused him to collide with a Ford driven by Travis Jenkins, 30, of Plant City.
Lovejoy rotated and traveled into the path of a tractor trailer, driven by Gerald Cole, 60, of Mobile, Alabama. The tractor trailer, which was hauling cardboard, was entering I-4 from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. It collided with Lovejoy's car.
Lovejoy's car stopped on the outside paved shoulder. He died at the hospital.
