According to the Hamilton County Coroner, the car ran off the road and hit a tree.

In a letter to parents, Mariemont High School Principal Dr. Jim Renner said that Evan wasn’t wearing a seat belt and, “his family wanted me to reiterate the importance of drivers and passengers wearing seat belts at all times.”

“Evan was a kind and considerate young man who was a friend to many at the high school,” Renner wrote. “Our hearts go out to Evan’s family and to all of his friends, teachers, and classmates at this tremendously difficult time.”

Evan’s high school classmates and teachers honored him and his family by having a Candlelight Vigil on Saturday, April 4 at 9 p.m.. Due to the [coronavirus situation], those who participated lit a candle on their front porch and Evan’s family drove through the neighborhoods to see them.
