His best friend, Trevor Giles, wants Sandoval to be remembered. "He was great at drama. He was great at debate. He was friendly with almost anybody, just an all-around good guy," he said.

Sandoval had just started his junior year at Lehi High School. His 15-year-old brother also was in the car but wasn't seriously hurt.
