PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - A two vehicle crash on Harbor View Road near Laverne Street took the life of a 51-year-old Punta Gorda woman Sunday afternoon.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that Kelly De Reno was driving east on Harbor View approaching Laverne when for some unknown reason she veered her Honda into the westbound lanes into the path of a Dodge Caravan driven by 47-year-old Michelle Saunders of Punta Gorda. 

The two vehicles collided head-on.  De Reno was later declared dead at Peace River Hospital.  Saunders was taken to Fawcett Medical in serious condition.
