(Lancaster) -- Officials say the body of a college student was found lying on a Lancaster County road, but the coroner still isn't sure how he died.

Nineteen-year-old Millersville University student Kevin Chavez was found on a road near a silo in West Hempfield Township around 9:30 p.m. Monday.

Police say his car was parked nearby.

Lancaster County Coroner Stephen Diamantoni conducted an autopsy Tuesday and says Chavez suffered multiple traumatic injuries, but he says the manner of death still hasn't been determined.

University spokeswoman Janet Kacskos says Chavez was a good student and that school officials are reaching out to his family.
