The teenage girl who died after the July 6 crash of Asiana Flight 214 was killed from blunt trauma injuries consistent with those suffered from being hit by vehicle, the San Mateo coroner announced Friday.

Ye Mengyuan, 16, was alive when she received injuries consistent with motor vehicle contact, Robert J. Foucrault said.

She was badly injured in the crash, then was covered on the runway in flame-retardant foam and hit by a fire truck speeding to the crash site.

Ye was a champion athlete who excelled at literature, playing the piano, singing and public speaking. Her given name means "wish come true" in Chinese.

Ye's close friend Wang Linjia, also 16, was among a group of injured passengers who did not get immediate medical help. Rescuers did not spot her until 14 minutes after the crash. Wang's body was found along with three flight attendants who were flung onto the tarmac.

Cellphone pictures posted online by friends show the two girls dressed in their school's track suit uniforms, smiling and mugging for the cameras. Local media reports said she had recently won a national aerobics competition and routinely received honors at the school's annual speech contests.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
