Teen dies after saving six kids from runaway SUV

A 13-YEAR-OLD Brooklyn girl died a hero after saving six kids, including her younger sister, by herding them indoors to escape an out-of-control SUV careening down the street .
The New York Post reported she ran out of time to save herself.
“My daughter told everybody to run, but she didn’t,” the devastated mother, Joyce Lovelady, said.
“She told them to run. She saw the car coming. She was trying to get to the door. She got everybody else in.”
The tragedy – which also left the SUV driver dead – unfolded late Saturday as Kira Goddard was sitting in front of her home on Pacific St in Brownsville.
She was with her sister and friends when she saw a Range Rover approaching.
Cops said the driver had been stabbed and was going for help when he ploughed into one car and was going in reverse when he hit Kira.
Kira got everyone else inside after watching the accident unfold.
“She warned everyone but didn’t make it herself,” one officer said.
