Aaron Shawn Hill, 18, was driving with several other students when he was hit head-on by a pickup truck that crossed the center line, the Spartanburg Herald-Journal reports. Three other students in the car sustained injuries. His father, Sgt. Shawn Hill, was killed by a roadside bomb two years ago.
