NEW YORK (NY1/CNN) - A stolen minivan hit a family on a Brooklyn sidewalk on Wednesday, killing a 12-year-old girl.
Her mother and sister, who were also hit, were in critical condition.
Police say the van hopped the curb, and the driver ran away. Witnesses tried to save the young girl.
"We [saw] the car crash. We [saw] two girls laying down on the floor by the car, a lot of blood,” Jason Conar said. “Then we realized that somebody else was under the car, so me and a couple of my friends pushed the car over and then started to pick up the girl or whatever to see if she was OK."
Witnesses told police the van was speeding right before the crash.
