MURRAY -- A 17-year-old girl is making small steps to recovery after she was critically injured in a West Valley City crash that killed two of her classmates.
Bessie Porter tells KSL her daughter Cassidy Porter has winked at her and shown other signs of responding this weekend even though she's suffering from a torn aorta, broken bones and other internal injuries.
Porter was injured when the Honda Civic she was riding in lost control and hit another vehicle just after noon Wednesday. Sixteen-year-old driver Jacob Armijo and passenger Avery Bock were killed.
Sixteen-year-old passenger Leticia Cordero had serious injuries but has since been released from the hospital.
All four were students at nearby Hunter High School.
Forty-year-old Monica Hood had serious injuries when the teens' car hit her Toyota Corolla.
