BOULDER — The girl killed after being swept away in Boulder Creek after a car crash was a spunky seventh grader who was inseparable her twin sister.

Thirteen-year-old Sophia Dubose of Rollinsville died Saturday after the pickup she was riding in with her dad and sister Eliza plunged into the creek. They had hit another vehicle that had stopped for a bear.

She floated for several miles down the creek before authorities were able to pull her out.

Sophia was a week away from finishing seventh grade at Shining Mountain Waldorf School in Boulder. School director Susan Levine told the Daily Camera (http://bit.ly/1oOWR4n ) that the redhead was a "spunky girl" who radiated love.

Her sister returned to classes there Monday. Students plan to create prayer flags for Sophia this week.
