Alcohol is believed to be a factor in a Cass County car-train accident.
Just before 9:00 Monday night Cass County Central Dispatch received a call of a single vehicle crash with a train in New Waverly. A vehicle had been struck at that location by an eastbound train.
The Cass County Sheriff’s Department says preliminary investigation found that David Diaz, 39, of Logansport, was driving a 2014 Toyota. He drove off the road and onto the tracks. Diaz got out to go find help when the truck got stuck on the tracks.
The crash is still under investigation.
