ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. – A Stoney Creek High School senior who was hit by a car last week has died.

Elisa Volcic, 17, was struck Monday, Oct. 18, while she was walking on Tienken Road near Clear Creek Drive. She suffered broken bones and a traumatic brain injury. She was in critical condition at a hospital before her death.

The community raised more than $100,000 to help the family cover the costs of the medical bills.

Volcic was struck by a 2006 Hyundai Elantra driven by a 16-year-old boy from Shelby Township, authorities said. The driver is a junior at the high school, according to police.

Police do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash. The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate.
