Daniela’s older sister, 17-year-old Giulia, survived and is in critical condition. Another teen girl remains in a coma.

All of them attended Springbank Community high school. Staff at the school opened the doors Friday to give teachers and students a place to grieve and talk.

RCMP continue to investigate the cause of the crash but say it could be at least a month before they know exactly what happened.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to call the Cochrane RCMP at 403-851-8000. Anonymous information can be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online.
