Stabbed NY driver, flips SUV, kills 13-year-old

Police in the US say a driver who nailed four parked cars and flipped his SUV onto a 13-year-old girl standing outside her New York home had been stabbed.

The driver and the teenager both died.

Officers responded to a report of a pedestrian struck Saturday night.

A preliminary investigation showed that 44-year-old Sean Lewis of Brooklyn was driving an SUV when he struck three parked cars.

Police say he backed up and hit another parked car, causing his SUV to flip. They say the SUV then hit Kira Goddard, who was standing in front of her Brooklyn home.

Lewis suffered head injuries and was taken to the hospital, where medical staff discovered that he had been stabbed in the torso.

He later died.

The medical examiner will determine Lewis’ cause of death.
