At approximately 2:41 am on September 22, PCSO deputies responded to the report of a single vehicle crash in the area of Highway 640 and Highway 17 North in Bartow.

Upon their arrival, deputies located 19-year-old Joshua Allen Pollard of Travis Court E., Bartow pinned inside a gray, 2013 four-door, Ford Fusion.

Emergency responders arrived and Pollard was extracted from the vehicle and transported to Lakeland Regional Health.

The go fund me page which was created by the family is located here:


It posts that:

Throughout the course of today (9/22/2016) he has been declared brain dead. The family has decided to donate Joshua’s organs if the 2nd and final test declares what we fear. Unfortunately the part no one wants to think about is the financial side of it, but now our family needs to start planning on laying Joshua to rest, if the Lord calls him home. Any help would be greatly appreciated by our family and we thank you! Prayers are needed!

Unfortunately it is the update that Joshua did succumb to his injuries.

If there is any further information Fort Meade Daily will bring it to you as soon as possible.
