TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Police Department is investigating a deadly rollover crash involving alcohol near Ybor City Friday night.
Emergency crews responded to a call of a crash on North 15th Street near East 21st Avenue. According to TPD, 47-year-old Roberto Diaz was driving a Ford F-150 the wrong way on North 15th Street at a high speed, hitting several parked cars and flipping the truck on its side.
Police say the truck hit a Cadillac that was making a left turn onto 15th Street, then came to a rest on its roof.
First responders had to cut Diaz and his passenger, 62-year-old Alejandro Ocampo out of the truck. Both men were unresponsive and pronounced dead at the scene, TPD says.
Neither of the men were wearing a seat belt and police say alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the crash.
