AVON, Ind. (April 7, 2016) – Police say an Avon High School student died in a single-vehicle crash in Avon Wednesday night.

Avon police identified the victim as 17-year-old Jon Legg.

Emergency crews were called to the scene around 6 p.m. Wednesday at South County Road 525 East and East County Road 200 South. Investigators arrived to find a red Ford Fusion had struck a tree on the west side of the road. Legg was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 17-year-old was a member of the FCA and the Avon High School Marching Black and Gold. He was born in Indianapolis and lived with his mother and stepfather in Avon. His family described him as a good big brother to three siblings who loved hunting, shooting basketball and playing video games.

Avon High School released a statement about his death:

Avon Community School Corporation is devastated by the tragic death of Avon High School Student Jonathan Legg. Jonathan, a junior, was an exceptional school citizen who was highly thought of by his peers. His teachers said that he was hard-working, wonderful and witty. Jonathan was a member of the Avon Marching Black and Gold Band and was a member of FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes).

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Counselors will be available beginning Thursday morning for students and staff.
