A 17-year old Ridgefield High School senior died when a pickup he was riding in rolled over Wednesday night.

Tanner Kaine Trosko died in the crash, which occurred at 7:38 p.m. near the corner of Northwest 291st Street and Northwest Main Avenue, near the Ridgefield National Wildlife headquarters, according to Clark County Fire & Rescue. He was declared dead at the scene.

Thursday, the Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death accidental, saying the cause was mechanical asphyxia, meaning something, such as compression or a piece of the truck, prevented Trosko from breathing.

The driver, Lucas Cory Wells, also 17 and a Ridgefield High senior, was not injured. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

On Thursday morning, Ridgefield High School teachers and staff met with counselors before the start of the school day to receive guidance for talking with the students. Administrators turned the library into a support center and safe room for students to attend throughout the day to receive counseling and support.
