"Mommy, The Car Is Coming" 3-Year-Old Girl's Heartbreaking Last Words Before She Was Killed While Crossing A Road

"Mommy, the car is coming." Three-year-old Miriam Dansoko uttered these five words before she was tragically struck down while crossing a major thoroughfare in New York City's South Bronx community on Monday, May 16. According to New York Daily News, Mariam Dansoko, dressed in a navy blue school uniform, lagged slightly behind her mother, who was pushing a stroller holding another child as they walked across 164th St. in the crosswalk, police and witnesses said.

Rougui Kebe, Miriam’s mother, was only a few steps ahead before she turned around to witness what would ultimately be another heartbreak. The little girl had released her mother’s hand just after 8 a.m., moments before a 21-year-old man driving a Nissan Altima fatally struck little Miriam, according to the News. 

Witnesses told the news outlet that he swerved to avoid hitting Kebe, but did not see Miriam. Responders recall that the man stayed on the scene and was visibly distraught afterwards. "Kebe was yelling, ‘Oh, my God! My baby! My baby!’”" said Will Velez, a 56-year-old super at a nearby building.

Before the car hits her, she said, ‘Mommy, the car is coming.’ She was right here on my back,” recalled Rougui Kebe, who horrifically witnessed her younger brother being killed by a mini-van in 2012.

Kebe was 9 months pregnant with Miriam when she watched her brother, Ebrahim die after he was hit by a minivan just a few blocks away in 2012. Ebrahim, 4, was playing when he darted into traffic. Kebe said she tried to stop him before he was killed. First responders rushed Miriam to nearby Lincoln Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival. 

Kebe told the News that her daughter was an angel who loved school and Dora The Explorer. "She’s an angel,” her mother said. "She loves school. At school, she knew everybody’s name. She liked everybody. She’s so friendly."

Kebe said all she can do is try to cope with the loss.
