CALGARY - Danyelle Welch has a large hole in her heart.

About 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night, the young man she called her best friend was struck and killed by a vehicle, which then drove off.

Trystan Sorensen, 18, known by his nickname, Tido, died at the scene.

A friend Sorensen had been longboarding with that night along Hwy. 592, just west of Penhold and roughly 115 km north of Calgary, was not injured, said Mounties.
