Tampa man, 89, riding in car dies in crash

TAMPA — An 89-year-old passenger has died following a crash Wednesday afternoon in northern Hillsborough County.

Norris B. Upton of Tampa was taken to University Community Hospital where he later died, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

The crash happened around 4 p.m. Wednesday when the 2008 Hyundai Sonata that Upton was riding in and a 2003 Dodge Spirit van collided at Bearss Avenue and N 12th Street.

The driver of the van, Rosanne Mangano Miller, 64, of Lutz was not injured but was cited with failing to yield the right of way, the Sheriff's Office said.

The driver of the car, Linda Collins Ramirez, 59, who lived at the same Tampa address as Upton, suffered non-incapacitating injuries, investigators said.

The Sheriff's Office said Upton was not wearing a seat belt, but the car's airbag did deploy.
