Teen killed in early morning accident identified

The name of the Mishawaka teenager killed in an early morning car accident on Capitol Avenue has been released.

 

Police identified the teen as 17-year-old Anthony Ryor.

 

Investigators say it is very early in their investigation, but they believe speeding was a factor.

 

Tuesday would have been Ryor’s first day of his senior year at Mishawaka High School.  

 

Ryor’s last tweet was sent out before the accident that occurred around 12:45 Monday morning.

 

It reads "blessed ya know?" and hundreds of people have retweeted that tweet. 

 

"He was actually like one of the brightest kids to be around. He always cracked jokes. Always had a smile. He loved sunflower seeds: that's all he would do during baseball. He was a heck of a second baseman. He had great hands," says friend and 2012 Mishawaka Caveman teammate Jarrod Laymon.  

 

Laymon is away at Ball State for college, but he wants to make sure that Ryor’s memory is honored.  

 

Laymon and other friends of Ryor are reaching out to the Mishawaka baseball coach to get Ryor’s baseball number, #1, retired,  

 

"I want to for sure have his number retired just because it leaves his legacy because he was a heck of a kid, heck of a teammate. He worked really hard too and he was just a great role model," says Laymon.

 

The principal of Mishawaka High School says the school will have counselors on hand for the first day of school Tuesday to help students cope with this difficult time.
