Tragedy struck the Midwood community when a 15-year-old girl was struck by a car and killed at East 7th Street and Avenue O yesterday afternoon, according to an article in the New York Daily News [2].

Sara Kischik was clipped by a 2006 Ford van after she stepped in the road from between two parked cars at E. Seventh St. and Ave. O in Midwood about 2:50 p.m., police sources said.

Emergency workers with Hatzalah, a Jewish ambulance service, took the injured girl to Maimonides Medical Center.

The teen, who was a student at Bais Yaakov on 13th Ave., died at the hospital.

“My heart goes out to family of 15 year old Bais Yaakov girl who died today while crossing street at Avenue O & East 7,” Councilman David Greenfield (D-Brooklyn) posted on his Twitter account.

Police were still investigating, but said the driver of the van remained at the scene and was not expected to be charged.
