Deputies identify two killed in Brandon car crash

Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies have identified two people killed in a fatal car crash early Sunday in Brandon.

Valrico resident David Casey Martin, 21, and Lithia resident Catherine Marie Loux, 20, died in the accident at the intersection of Bloomingdale Avenue and Kings Avenue.

Martin was driving a four-door Jaguar east "at a high rate of speed" at about 4:30 a.m. Sunday, the Sheriff's Office said. The car left the roadway going south and struck an electric utility pole.

The impact broke both the pole and vehicle in half, according to deputies.

A man who spoke to a reporter from the home of Martin's mother said relatives would not be commenting.

Loux's relatives could not be reached for comment.
