A Gibsonton woman died Saturday morning after a crash on Interstate 75 near Gibsonton Drive, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The woman, who has not been identified, was traveling north in the center lane of I-75 north of Gibsonton Drive at about 10:45 a.m. when she tried to change to the inside lane, FHP said. Her Toyota Tacoma collided with the side of a Lexus driven by Candelaria M. Perez, 38, of Riverview.

Both vehicles went onto the east shoulder of the road. The Toyota hit a Florida Department of Transportation sign and overturned, FHP said.

Perez was transported to Brandon Regional Hospital with minor injuries. The woman driving the Toyota died at the scene, FHP said.
