Long lost control while was traveling around a curve at a high rate of speed, according to state police.

His car hit a stone wall on the passenger side and then head-on before overturning and coming to a rest on its roof in a field along the road, police said.

Long died at the scene due to injuries sustained in the crash, police said.

According to Long's obituary, he graduated from Solanco High School in 2012 and went on to complete a diesel mechanic program at Universal Technical Institute.
