Taylor Lobdell was identified as the teen driver found in a car in West Boise Sunday morning, according to the Ada County Coroner's Office.
The coroner's report indicates that Lobdell died from blunt force trauma to the chest as a result of a car crash.
Just after 8:30 a.m. Sunday, police were called to a parking lot at West Executive Drive and West President Drive, near Cloverdale Road. A passerby reported to police that a young male driver in the vehicle wasn't breathing, and responding paramedics confirmed he had died. Investigators determined that the vehicle had been in a crash, possibly around 10 p.m. Saturday night.
Crash reconstruction experts determined the vehicle was traveling east on West Executive Drive, and the driver failed to negotiate a curve and ran into curbs and a gate before the car came to rest in the parking lot.
