Travis was driving with his girlfriend, Elizabeth Rybarczyk, to a charity event he was participating in for community service when he swerved into the opposite lane and crashed head-on with another vehicle. The couple had attended Frontier's senior prom the night before.
Rybarczyk, a 2018 graduate of Frontier, was taken to ECMC. She is currently listed in stable condition.
Grief counselors will be on hand at the school this week.
