The 17-year-old entering his senior year in high school was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Monday was a star athlete.

John Guerra, of the Florida section of Warwick in Orange County, was killed around 10:35 p.m. when his 2005 Honda Civic, traveling south on Union Corners Road, left the roadway and rolled, coming to a stop against a tree, said Town of Warwick Lt. John Rader.

A two-time all-state basketball player for S.S. Seward High School, Guerra was third-team all-state in Class D as a sophomore and made the fourth team last season in Class C, according to the New York Sportswriters Association.

He reached 1,000 career points in the final regular-season game of 2018 and was also a member of the school's 2017 Section 9 Class C soccer championship team.

Counselors and staff members were available for students needing assistance on Tuesday.
