Dade City police identify man killed by train

DADE CITY — A 48-year-old man was hit and killed by a train Tuesday in what police are calling "a tragic accident."

The collision happened about noon on the CSX railroad tracks, approximately 75 yards north of the train depot on the U.S. 98 Bypass.

Witnesses saw Jose Manuel Correa cross the tracks several hundred feet in front of a southbound train, the Dade City Police Department said. Correa was carrying a gas can and appeared to be headed to a station at U.S. 98 and Church Avenue.

He moved to the right side of the western-most tracks and never looked back toward the train, witnesses told police. The train struck him on the right side of his body.

Correa, of 14303 1st St., was identified by his brother. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor, police said.
