The San Luis Obispo County Sher­iff’s Of­fice has iden­ti­fied the teen killed in a car crash near Cal Poly on Mon­day as 18-year-old Zachary An­drew Har­ris of South Lake Ta­hoe.

Ac­cord­ing to a Sher­iff’s Of­fice news re­lease, Har­ris was the sole oc­cu­pant of the ve­hi­cle that was south­bound on High­way 1 when it veered off the road and hit a tree near Stenner Creek Road.

He was de­clared dead at the scene.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, a joint in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing be­tween the San Luis Obispo County Coro­ner and the Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol into the crash.

Har­ris was a first se­mes­ter stu­dent at Cuesta Col­lege, the com­mu­nity col­lege con­firmed Thurs­day.

In a let­ter sent to stu­dents and staff, As­sis­tant Su­per­in­ten­dent and Vice Pres­i­dent of Stu­dent Ser­vices Mark Sanchez said on-cam­pus coun­sel­ing ser­vices and grief sup­port are avail­able for stu­dents through the Stu­dent Health Cen­ter.
