Police tell me they've not gotten word yet on results of the autopsies performed today on the five kids who died in a car wreck south of Colorado City Wednesday.

But in the meantime, I thought I would share a few extra thoughts about victim Rachel Colgrove, 17, from her aunt that didn't quite fit into Thursday's story. (In the picture, Rachel is the dark-haired girl on the right. Left is Monica Bistline, also killed in the wreck).

"She just struck me as being the sweetest little girl," Eliza Williams, of Centennial Park said Thursday. Rachel gave her a set of coasters shaped like an orange. "Every time I wash dishes I'm going to think of her now. It just reminds you that life is so fragile ... I can only just imagine watching this little baby that you had grow up and now they're gone."
