Bicyclist collides with train in east Tampa

TAMPA —For the second time in less than a month, a man and a train collided at N 50th Street near Uceta Road.

Tampa police said a 47-year-old bicyclist pedaling north on the 50th Street sidewalk Tuesday night ignored a warning signal and rode the bike into a train.

He was taken to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition with life-threatening injuries, said Lt. Ruben Delgado, a spokesman for the police.

The freight train had only two engines and no cars, police said.

On April 7, family members told the Times that 26-year-old Colbey Price of Seffner was hit and killed while walking on the tracks near the same intersection.

That man was walking in an area between the CSX railroad yard and businesses when a Miami-bound Amtrak passenger train bore down, blowing its whistle, police said. He was dragged beneath the locomotive.

Tuesday's accident is still under investigation.
