FHP: Man killed when car hits pole, tree in Osceola County

A 24-year-old St. Cloud man died Sunday when his car struck a concrete pole and a tree, troopers say.

Randy Collado was heading south on Red Jasper Drive near Partin Settlement Road about 11:20 p.m. when he lost control of his 2005 Acura, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The car went off the road and onto the west shoulder, then hit the pole and tree.

Collado was declared dead at the scene.

Red Jasper Drive is a short road between Kissimmee and St. Cloud that leads to an apartment complex. 

Troopers said it’s unknown whether Collado was wearing a seat belt.
