According to police reports, a 2009 Honda Civic was traveling westbound on East Putnam Avenue when it left the road in the area of Wendle Place and struck a wall. Inside that vehicle was Westhill High School starting offensive lineman Jordan Martinez who died from his injuries.

The Westhill community is mourning the loss of Martinez, 17, who died in a single-car accident.

Martinez had played offensive guard, defensive line and special teams for the Vikings.

A Vigil was held for Martinez, and the young man will be missed. Police are still investigating the accident. Please keep his family and friends in your prayer.
