SPOKANE VALLEY, WA. (THECOUNT) — Adam England, a Central Valley High School student, has died in the hospital after being involved in a crash on I-90 in Post Falls last week.
A GoFundMe page announced England had passed away early Monday morning.
“He was incredibly strong in his fight, and we pray for comfort over the family at this time,” an organizer for the GoFundMe page said.
Idaho State Police also confirmed that the juvenile involved in the I-90 crash succumbed to his injuries Monday, though ISP didn’t identify him in the updated press release. ISP said next of kin has been notified, reports KHQ.
Adam is a talented swimmer, incredible teammate, and loved friend. After a tragic accident on Feb. 4, he was thought to be brain dead but then surprisingly started responding to stimuli. He was transferred to Harbor View Medical Center, so doctors could run more tests and watch for improvement. Many of us wish we could do something to help his family, and a good way to start is by raising money for the costs of transportation, medical bills, and any other expenses that come with heart breaking tragedies like this. Please donate, and help us fight alongside, Adam. “This one’s for Adam”
England had been transferred to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition on Thursday, Feb. 6. Friends of Adam’s said England had been responding to commands and opened his eyes on Friday.
The GoFundMe page has surpassed the goal of $20,000 raised towards the family to assist with medical bills, transportation and other expenses. The page organizer says they will still accept donations towards the Englands.
