Authorities have identified 17-year-old Gabby Leyva as the pedestrian who was killed Monday when she and two other teenagers were struck by a vehicle that veered off the road after being involved in an accident with another vehicle moments earlier.

Another 17-year-old struck by the car was treated for a broken arm, and the driver of one of the other vehicles involved in the initial accident was injured but stable. The cause of the crash is still being determined.

We extend our deepest condolences to the family of the victim in this difficult time.
