Teen who died in single-vehicle crash in St. Johns County identified

Creekside High student dies in crash

The teen who died in a St. Johns County single-car wreck Wednesday evening has been identified.

The Florida Highway Patrol said Michael Jarek Sonognini, 17, was traveling northbound on Longleaf Pine Parkway near County Road 14A and crashed around 8:40 p.m. He lost control of his vehicle and entered into the median, crossed into the southbound lane, and his vehicle overturned.

At this time, they don't know why he lost control of his vehicle. Troopers said Sonognini wasn't wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from his vehicle.

Grief counselors will be on hand at Creekside High School Thursday morning to help the students who have been affected. 

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family through this hard time to help with funeral expenses and other financial difficulties.
