Brooklyn Girl Killed by Car Driven by Stabbed Man, Who Then Died
A 13-year-old girl was killed in Brooklyn last night when a stabbed man ran her over on the street. Kirra Goddard was struck by 44-year-old Sean Lewis' SUV when it overturned on Pacific Street in Ocean Hill; she was pronounced dead on the scene. Lewis crashed into several parked cars before his SUV flipped; he was taken to the hospital, where doctors discovered that he had been stabbed in the torso. He died soon after that. CBS reports that Kirra warned her sister and friends to get out of the way as the car careened down the street, effectively saving their lives.
