The family said the injured teen had been “in and out” of surgeries to aid head, pelvis and spinal injuries.

“We are so sad that it came to this, but have comfort in knowing that she is at peace and will always be with us,” organizer Cecilia Brink said in a post on Friday.

Collision reconstruction investigators say the probe into the collision has been completed.
