Jill Atwood ReportingA 17-year old Davis High School senior has passed away from injuries he received in a car crash earlier this week. Ryan Hill was one of six teens in the car which rolled several times after the driver lost control. He was also a member of the football team.

A Honda CRV rolled five times with six teens inside. The group was heading home from a leadership conference, and was excited about getting back in time for senior night. The next thing they know they were all in the hospital. Ryan Hill and Paxton Jensen were hurt the worst. Neither was wearing seatbelts and both were thrown from the car. Paxton is expected to make it, but Ryan passed away early this morning. Cory Carrol and Kendon Sayez walked away with only scratches.

Kendon and Ryan were very close; they both played on the football team's offensive line. He says they used to hit each other on the field, and then hit on girls off the field.

Kendon Sayez: "We just loved going on dates and hitting each other being together as best friends. And it’s really sad to see him not here with me."

For now, Cory says they will focus on each other. They will talk a lot and stick together, just like teammates do.

Everyone else is expected to recover, although Paxton Jensen is still in pretty serious condition.
