Teen saves six children before she is killed

KILLED: Kira Goddard

A TEENAGE girl ushered her little sister and five other children out of the path of the out-of-control truck, before being struck and killed.

Brooklyn resident, Kira Goddard, helped the children escape after she spotted the SUV driving erratically towards the entrance of her Brownsville apartment building, where she and the children were standing last Sunday (July 31).

Sean Smith, the driver of the Range Rover, had reportedly had been stabbed and was attempting to get help before he hit three parked cars before it flipped on top of Goddard, crushing her to death.

It has been reported that the 44-year-old later died in hospital from his stab wound.

The teen's mother Joyce Lovelady told NBC: "I don't know what to say. There are tears. But I can't cry. I'm very hurt. I am very, very hurt."

Another of Goddard’s relatives, Diane Jordan, said: "That was like her. She always looked out for others. I'm going to miss her."
