Lyneah Dike - a teen girl killed by a suspected drunk driver in Colorado

Lyneah Dike
Lyneah Dike, age 17, died on September 26, 2014, in Arvada, Colorado.

Lyneah was out with a female friend, age 18, who was driving. At about 7:30 p.m., their vehicle was struck head-on by a man who was speeding and who swerved across several lanes of traffic.

Lyneah was killed by the impact and died at the scene of the collision. Her friend suffered severe injuries to her legs and pelvis and was rushed to a nearby hospital.

Lyneah was a senior at Standley Lake High School in Westminster, Colorado.

David Bunn, age 54, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. He tested at twice the legal limit for alcohol and was exceeding the speed limit.

Lyneah's family members are devastated by her senseless and tragic death. They describe her as happy, bubbly and full of life. She is also described as energetic, outgoing and popular. She was thinking of going to college to study criminal justice leading to a career in law enforcement. She worked part-time. She was looking to the future. She will be forever mourned.
