A 17-year-old is dead following a vehicle crash around noon Saturday.

Rodrigo Solorio was driving a blue 1989 Nissan 240SX and attempted a left turn from Chamberlain Circle onto Austell Road when his truck entered into the path of another vehicle.

A 2002 black Land Rover Range Rover struck the truck on the driver’s side, according to Cobb police.

I taught this young man and am so sad that his life was taken. He was a GREAT kid and had a bright future ahead of him. His family is in my thoughts and prayers.
