I’m LAKELAND, Fla. (WFLA) — Moments after hitting a police cruiser and another vehicle, the driver of a pickup truck died after crashing into a historic building on South Florida Avenue in Lakeland.

“It was definitely, definitely shocking. I’m just glait seemed like it happened super early so nobody was over there,” said Lindsey Bagent, a hairstylist at Local Remedy, located across the street from the crash.

According to Lakeland police, Troy Davison, 52, of Boca Raton, was driving at a high rate of speed northbound just after 6 a.m.

He tried to pass a vehicle and struck a Lakeland police cruiser and another vehicle driving southbound. Both the officer and the driver of the other vehicle were transported to the hospital for minor injuries.

Davison continued northbound, hitting a light pole, then crashing through a brick wall into the showroom at the Waller Construction and Design Center.

The building was unoccupied at the time of the crash.

Davison died at the scene.

A person close to his family said Davison had been dealing with a health issue for several months and was unable to access the care he needed.

The Waller Centre was built in 1949.
