Two die in head-on collision

TAMPA — Two men died after a 28-year-old man's sport utility vehicle crossed over a median on Gunn Highway and hit a pickup truck head-on Tuesday morning, deputies said.

SUV driver Richard Celin died at the scene. The pickup truck's driver, Wilmer Hart, 60, died Tuesday afternoon at St. Joseph's Hospital, deputies say.

Authorities aren't sure what caused Celin to go over the median as he drove west on Gunn at about 9:15 a.m.

His Nissan Murano hit an eastbound Toyota Tundra driven by Hart, of New Port Richey.
