Friends React To Crash Victim's Tragic Death

POST FALLS, Idaho - Early Sunday morning 17-year-old Hannah Rhoades died when her car drove off the road and into a tree. On Monday her classmates returned to school to learn of the tragic news.

Beautiful flowers and heartfelt notes have been left at a makeshift memorial at the scene of the accident. Both friends and family are saddened and in disbelief that Hannah is gone.

"We were very close," said Jacqueline Brown, Hannah's cousin. "It's still super hard to deal with. I'm in shock and want her home."

Hannah had been attending Project CDA Alternative High School in Coeur d'Alene. Early Monday morning teachers gathered to discuss their crisis response before telling the students what happened.

Hannah's Facebook page has been overwhelmed with comments from friends and family. Dozens of responses show just how much she will be missed.

One friend wrote: "I miss you! Things aren't the same. I never cried so hard in my life. I'm still trying to get over the fact that you're gone! You were one of my best friends!"

Another friend wrote: "R.I.P Hannah, you will forever be missed. I can't believe you're actually gone. You were one of my first friends at Project…I love you girl."

The accident happened at the intersection of Seltice Way and Post St. in Post Falls. Police believe both alcohol and speed were factors in the crash. Hannah's friend, Sabrina Runkle, was a passenger in the vehicle. She was taken to Kootenai Medical Center with serious injuries.
