TROPICAL GULF ACRES — Two young adults lost their lives early Saturday morning after their vehicle struck a utility pole. Driver Kassandra Sedore, 19, and her passenger Anthony Buffington, 23 — both of Punta Gorda — were traveling at a high rate of speed around a curve on Tribune Boulevard near Poindexter Avenue just after midnight when Sedore lost control of the car, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. The 2010 Nissan Versa spun into the shoulder of the road where the driver’s side then reportedly hit a Florida Power & Light pole.
Both Sedore and Buffington were pronounced dead at the scene, the report states. No other vehicles were involved, and alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
