Crash kills 79-year-old Oldsmar man

OLDSMAR — A 79-year-old man died Monday after a wreck at State Road 580 and Bayview Boulevard that sent his car careening into a railroad crossing gate.

Andrew Cavanaugh, 306 Park Blvd., was driving north on Bayview Boulevard in a 2004 Buick Century at about 12:30 p.m., while 71-year-old M. Jaqueline Stinson, 602 Timberbay Circle E, was heading west on SR 580 in a 2003 Toyota Camry, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. Deputies said one of them ran a red light at the intersection.

The two cars collided, with Stinson's car slamming into the passenger side of Cavanaugh's car and sending it into a railroad crossing gate, deputies said.

Cavanaugh was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he died at about 6 p.m. Stinson went to Mease Countryside Hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
