LEWISTON, Idaho - Family and Friends of a Lewis-Clark State College baseball player are in mourning following his tragic death.

20-year-old Zachary Hull died early Thursday morning when he lost control of his pickup truck at the intersection of 14th Ave. and Vineyard in Lewiston. He went over the side of an embankment rolling several times and landed on it's top. Hull died on the scene while his passenger and teammate Brock Jessup walked away with only minor injuries. 

The LCSC campus is empty this week for spring break, but when students return on Monday they will learn of Hull's death, which is now the fourth student or staff member to die this year.

"The first thing I thought of was the hurt and grief going through the various athletes," said Bill Hayne, LCSC faculty member.

Faculty member Bill Hayne didn't know Hull personally but says this small school is a very close-knit community and the news of this will be hard.

"This is unexpected. They're gearing up for a season, and then something like this comes along, and it stretches their beliefs, their faith in each other, their belief in something bigger than themselves," said Hayne.

LCSC has decided to cancel it's games this upcoming weekend due to Hull's tragic death.
