March 21, 2014 (Rancho San Diego) – Julian Fraire, 16, was on his way to school at Steele Canyon High School Thursday morning from his home on Mt. Helix in unincorporated El Cajon. He never made it to class. The minivan he was driving crossed the center line and collided with an oncoming pickup truck on Steele Canyon Road. The teen died at the scene.
It’s far from the first tragic accident to impact the school and the families who attend Steele Canyon. Another 16-year-old, Zachary Jannenberg was killed in March 2007 when he lost control of the Ford Explorer he was drivin while on his way to school.
