A 19-year-old New Tampa resident has died following a single-vehicle crash early Friday morning.

Friends and family of Tyler Gregory Neuhaus, Colonial Grand Drive, are mourning his loss on social networking sites such as Twitter. The teen will be remembered next weekend at LifePoint Church.

“I've never seen a family as strong as the Neuhaus's. no family should have to go through that. Ty was a great kid with a big heart,” tweeted Alex Kranick.

“Who knew a life could be completely altered in the matter of seconds.. my prayers go out to the Neuhaus family, Ty will be missed. #RIPty,” wrote Alex Montgomery.

Wade Boggs tweeted: “Thought's and prayers go out to the Neuhaus family over the loss of their son Ty. He was a great kid. R.I.P. Ty.”

Neuhaus was airlifted early Friday following the single-vehicle crash. According to Tampa Police, Neuhaus was driving his 2007 Honda Civic eastbound on County Line Road when he crossed over the center line, over-corrected and then lost control. The incident happened around 2 a.m.

Neuhaus struck a utility pole, which,  according to media reports, ripped the car in half.
