A 16-year-old girl who died from injuries suffered in a two-car crash on Highway 16 was Shauna Hilton Hill of Eagle.
Hill was a promising figure skater and played violin for the Eagle High School orchestra, according to a biography from the Boise Figure Skating Club. Hill earned a silver medal at the Northwest Pacific Regional Figure Skating Championships in 2009 and a bronze medal at the 2010 event. She also competed in national events last year, according to her obituary.
The Ada County Coroner's Office released her name Thursday after an autopsy. Hill died of blunt force trauma Tuesday evening at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, where she'd been unconscious since the Dec. 10 crash at Highway 16 and Floating Feather Road.
Hill's family donated her organs, according to the coroner's office. The Eagle High School student was driving a 2008 Honda Accord west on Floating Feather when it was struck by 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee headed north on the highway about 6:45 p.m. A 16-year-old boy in the Accord was seriously injured but is recovering. The Jeep's driver, a 50-year-old Emmett woman, also was injured and is receiving ongoing medical care.
Investigators say Hill stopped at a stop sign on Floating Feather Road at the highway. She waited a few seconds before proceeding but when she did was immediately broadsided by the Jeep.
All three people were wearing seat belts and both vehicle had working airbags.
The investigation is ongoing and will be forwarded to the Ada County Prosecutor's Office for review.
Eagle High School has commemorated Hill with moments of silence at events, including a basketball game and band concert on Tuesday. Friends created a Facebook page commemorating her and repeated a quote on Hill's own profile page: "Goodbye is just a word used to shorten the phrase, 'until we meet again, I will miss you.'"
