Sister Accidentally Runs Over, Kills Brother

Police say a teenage girl accidentally ran over and killed her 17-year-old brother as the two played around in an Arizona shopping mall parking lot.

Mesa Police spokesman Ed Wessing says the sister had dropped off her brother at Superstition Springs Mall Saturday evening. And then they started playing around, with the brother jumping in front of the car and the sister slamming on the brakes.

Tragically, the last time that happened the sister was unable to stop and ran over the brother.

He was rushed to a hospital in critical condition and later pronounced dead.

Names and the girl's exact age were not available.

    Chelsea is 100% correct. I know I did some stupid things when I was a teenager. By God's grace nothing ever happened. I feel for this girl and her family. The guilt will be overwhelming forever.

    Your life is really sad! How dare you judge the parents. You can never say you have not had a dumb -ss moment where you did something where it endangered your life or another persons life. Like really. It was an accident, I doubt that she is rejoicing over the loss
