TEAMMATES, family and friends remembered Scott Jolliffe following the news of his death yesterday morning.
Scott, 18, was killed when his car left The Rock-Collingullie Road and hit a tree.
He was travelling north when his Holden Commodore left the roadway between 5.30am and 6.30am, two kilometres from Collingullie.
He was the sole occupant of the car.
The road was blocked in both directions for several hours following the accident.
Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the single-vehicle crash.
A spokesman for Wagga Police said a report was being prepared for the coroner.
The apprentice butcher from Collingullie graduated from Wagga High School this year.
President of The Rock-Yerong Creek Cricket Club Todd Hannam remembered Scott as a well-liked team player.
The shocking news had rocked the club.
“He was always keen to learn, always there for a laugh and made others laugh,” Mr Hannam said.
“He was a young bloke who had improved over the past two years.
“He wasn’t the best, but he put the effort into the game.
“He wanted to be there with his mates, no matter whether he bowled or batted.”
Friends paid tribute to the young man yesterday through social media.
“I will always remember your smile, your willingness to go with the flow and your sense of humour. I will always remember you. Love and thoughts to your beautiful family! Rest easy Scotty, taken way too soon,” Katie Fellows wrote on Facebook.
“Scotty you never failed to bring laughter to any situation. Will never forget all the great memories and the many camping trips! Much love, Rest in peace,” Abbey Fellows said.
The accident marks the sixth fatality since NSW Police’s Operational Safe Arrival commenced on Friday, December 19.
The state’s Traffic and Highway Patrol commander, Assistant Commissioner John Hartley, reissued a warning to motorists to take care when driving.
