"Martin's vehicle was displaced from the roadway and hit an air conditioning unit outside of a local business," Tampa Police spokesperson Janelle McGregor said in a statement. "Martin received minor cuts and bruises as a result of the crash."

Police said the driver of the Kia, Jake Balsay, is believed to have ignored a stop sign, causing the collision. Tampa Police officers responded to the scene and cited Balsay for committing a stop sign violation.
