    Police: 16-year-old girl runs over, kills brother while playing in Arizona mall parking lot

    1 hour, 4 minutes ago

    By The Associated Press

    MESA, Ariz. - 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 on Sunday identified the brother as Dwight J. Brock Jr. and his sister as 16-year-old Nicole M. Brock, both residents of Mesa.

    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.

    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.

    Yes. That's horrible.... it sometimes doesn't get worse than killing someone close to you. The poor family. How sad.

    well since this is the Dog House, I'm gonna call it what is is..... natural selection. People who play in front of moving cars get hit by them, no matter who is driving.

    I do feel bad for the girl, but I can't blame her in the least.

    Yeah...like the Darwin Awards.

    Just that they were young and never thinking anything would happen.

    I agree. If they were 46 and 47, and playing with cars, I would say the gene pool is better off.

    But 16 and 17? We all did some dumb things at that age. Can you say you never, ever did anything dangerous as a teenager? I can't. Sometimes chance/fate/God/karma is on your side, and sometimes not.
