Mother Survives Car Crash Only To Die Shortly After

Brittany Leith was returning home from a friend's house when her 2006 Nissan Sentra struck the center median and flipped over in the left lane of the westbound Parkway.

Good Samaritans helped 25-year-old Brittany get out of her overturned car early on Sunday. They then begged the mother of a three-year-old daughter not to cross a New York parkway alone to get her purse. She initially made it to safety on the right shoulder, but decided to return to her car – which did not have its lights on.

She was near the side of the car when the driver of a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu sideswiped the car and struck her.

The driver said that he was initially driving in the right lane but switched to the left lane when he saw “lights” and “commotion” at the right shoulder. He never saw Leith or her car. He will not be charged in the accident and is cooperating with police.

The vehicle of a state trooper who arrived at the accident scene was subsequently hit by a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder as the trooper was attempting to exit his car.

An autopsy will be performed on Leith on Monday. Leith’s maternal grandmother, Claire Hansen, said, “How do we tell this little girl. She keeps saying, ‘Where’s Mommy? Where’s Mommy?’” It’s just not fair sometimes. Life isn’t fair.”
