Who was Zach Henn? El Dorado High School Student Killed in Placentia Car Crash

A 17-year-old junior at El Dorado High School was killed in a crash while driving to school in Orange County.

The accident occurred at about 8:15 a.m. at the intersection of Yorba Linda Boulevard and Valencia Avenue in the city of Placentia on Tuesday morning.

Zach Henn was driving to school in his 1984 Corvette when his car was struck by a Range Rover driven by a 39-year-old woman with two juvenile passengers.

Henn died in the crash while his passenger was relatively unharmed.

All three people in the other car also escaped with non-life-threatening injuries.

Henn had been trapped inside the Corvette with major injuries and required extrication.

He was declared dead at a local hospital.

“I just saw him yesterday,” said Jacob Estrada, a friend of Henn’s.

“He was telling me how things were going, how he’s always busy. He had a new job and a new car, too. He was super excited about [the Corvette]. He loved it and loved working on it all the time.”

The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District released a statement on the teen’s death saying: “Our entire school district is overwhelmed by grief beyond words. During this incredibly challenging time, we ask for your compassion in respecting the privacy of our student’s loved ones and to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.”
