MONTGOMERY, OH (FOX19) -

A senior at St. Xavier High School died in a rollover crash Monday morning, days before graduation, school officials confirmed.

Rescue crews spotted Matthew Clark's vehicle about 50 feet off the eastbound lanes of Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway around 5:15 a.m.

He was extricated from the car and flown to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

He passed away at the hospital early Monday afternoon, Principal Terrence Tyrrell wrote in a letter to students. 

Monday was the last day of class before senior graduation on May 24, according to a school spokesperson. 

Support groups and guidance counselors will be available for students Tuesday. 

A prayer vigil was held Monday night at St. James White Oak School, which Clark attended as a child.
