BROOKSVILLE — Norris Hubbard, 62, of Tampa, died Tuesday morning in a two-vehicle crash that snarled traffic on northbound Interstate 75 in Hernando County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

An Isuzu box truck collided with the back of a slower moving International tractor trailer about 6:15 a.m. at mile marker 301 near the State Road 50 exit, according to the FHP. Troopers say Hubbard, who was driving the Isuzu, failed to see the truck in time to stop. He died at the scene.

The driver of the tractor trailer, 24-year-old Dimitri Smith of West Palm Beach, was not injured.
