Four from Tampa in serious condition after SUV, locomotive collide in Oldsmar

OLDSMAR — A train and a sport utility vehicle carrying four collided at the intersection of Tampa Road and State Road 580 on Sunday night.

The passengers of the SUV were transported to local hospitals in serious condition just after 7 p.m., according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. One passenger was airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center. Deputies said late Sunday that the injuries were not life threatening.

There were no passenger or freight cars attached to the locomotive at the time and the engineer was not hurt, deputies said.

How the locomotive and the SUV, a 2009 Audi Q5, came into contact was being investigated.

Deputies identified the four occupants, all from Tampa, Sunday night.

Daniel Diaz, 70, was behind the wheel. The passengers were Caridad Diaz, 70, Berta Diaz, 71, and Modestina Leguen, 89.

Witnesses told Bay News 9 that the crossing lights were working at the intersection and the stop arms were down. Sheriff Sgt. Glenn Luben told Bay News 9 that the SUV may have been on the wrong side of the road when the accident took place.
