On June 16, 2016 at approximately 5:30 pm, Samuel Melgar left work and was driving the Honda eastbound on Broadway Avenue, on his way home. He had reached speeds of 50 mph and was accelerating according to witnesses approximately 25-50 yards behind Melgar. He failed to successfully negotiate the curve at the intersection by Tampa East Boulevard and the Honda began to rotate counter clockwise. The Honda slid off the north edge of Broadway Avenue and struck a wooden utility pole with the Honda's passenger side. Melgar was transported to Brandon Hospital where he died at 6;40 pm from injuries received in this crash. He was the sole occupant.
