Two 17-year-old Shakopee teens remain hospitalized with serious injuries more than a week after a rollover crash that killed their 16-year-old friend.
Sheikhnur "Shak" Jimale, who is in critical condition on life support, awaits surgery to realign his spine at Hennepin County Medical Center, according to an update on his GoFundMe page.
Doctors postponed the procedure because he was still unable to breathe on his own.
The Shakopee High School junior also suffered internal injuries and has been kept heavily sedated, according to updates on the fundraising page.
Hannah Chance is now listed in stable condition and being treated for a broken neck.
She fractured two cervical vertebrae, an injury that usually causes paralysis. But family members dubbed her "a living miracle" after she was up and walking on Monday.
"More tests and time are needed to determine whether there is any permanent spinal cord damage or brain injury," Krista Barsness, Chance's aunt, wrote on her GoFundMe page.
Chance was moved out of the intensive care unit on Wednesday and is expected to be discharged within a week.
The Scott County Sheriff's Office is investigating the cause of the crash, which occurred shortly after 3 p.m. Sept. 14 along Zumbro Avenue in Jackson Township.
Five teenagers were traveling on a gravel road when the Jeep Cherokee they were in left the road, hit a driveway and overturned near a cornfield.
Ja'Mason Moffett, a Shakopee High School junior, was pronounced dead at the scene — sending shock waves through a school community in the early days of its new school year.
The underage driver, whose name has not been disclosed by authorities, was released from St. Francis Regional Medical Center last week, along with passenger Khalil Watson, 20, of Burnsville.
It's too early to tell whether alcohol or drugs were involved, said Scott County Sheriff Luke Hennen.
The State Patrol is reconstructing the crash to determine whether the vehicle was speeding, but few new details were available Thursday.
A "Shako Strong" Facebook page quickly formed to support the victim's families and provide updates.
A silent auction will be held Oct. 3 at Pablo's Mexican Restaurant in Shakopee, with all proceeds going to Jimale and Chance's families.
