One man was killed and another sustained life-threatening injuries after a head-on crash Tuesday morning on Gunn Highway, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.

Richard Alexander Celin, of Tampa, was driving west in a 2005 Nissan Murano and Wilmer Donald Hart, 60, of New Port Richey, was driving east in a 2002 Toyota Tundra pickup with a utility trailer, deputies said.

About 9:15 a.m., Celin crossed the median for unknown reasons, deputies said. Hart applied his brakes and his pickup was struck head on by the Nissan, deputies said.

Celin was pronounced dead at the scene and Hart was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital, the sheriff’s office said.
