A 9 year old girl is dead after a car accident last night in Brooklyn.

The Daily News says Rebecca Ramnarine had just left church when the car she was traveling in was hit by a Honda at the intersection of Remsen Avenue and Avenue N.  Ramnarine was transported to Brookdale University Hospital where she was pronounced dead. 

Five others were treated at the hospital for injuries described as minor.

The driver of the Honda was reportedly pulled over by police because his vehicle matched the description of a car involved in a hit and run accident.  He then allegedly sped off, resulting in the accident.

As the driver was being treated at the hospital, the father of the girl, Richard Ramnarine, waited outside the emergency room.

"He took my daughter's life and I'm hurting, but I don't feel like I want to go in there and hurt him," Ramnarine said.

The driver was taken into custody by police.

"I'll let the system take its course," Ramnarine said.
