Horrific video captures the moment a 14-year-old girl was killed after being ejected from a car when it slammed into a parked UPS truck.
The footage, posted on the Citizen App, shows a red 2005 BMW 325i as it drives into the back of a parked UPS track.
The incident happened Wednesday night on North Conduit Avenue and 160th Street in the Springfield Gardens neighborhood of Queens, New York City.
Due to the speed of the BMW, the UPS truck is violently rocked back and forth and caused the delivery driver to be thrown to the ground.

Debris was tossed from the vehicle as it rams into the rear of the delivery van, killing 14-year-old Fortune Williams in the process.
Speaking to ABC7, Williams’ mom Keisha Francis said: ‘I found her bracelet I can’t sleep. I come to get her. I come to get my daughter. I can’t live without my daughter.’
Francis searched desperately through the debris on Thursday morning for anything that would remind her of her daughter.
She continued: ‘My life will never be the same without Fortune. Fortune is a sweetheart. She’s a loving, caring child.’
Francis also told the news site that she was working when the tragedy happened, and that Fortune had gone out with a friend in their car.
Police are now investigating why the 16-year-old boy was behind the wheel with another minor. The NYPD says he was driving with a Learner’s Permit and speeding.
