Driver hits and kills woman, smashes into cars, and tries to steal vehicle while fleeing in Brooklyn: police.

A driver fatally struck a woman in Brooklyn on Thursday night, then injured about a dozen people — including himself — as he tried to flee, the police said. An out-of-control driver ran down a woman on Thanksgiving night, leaving her to die, then smashed into a slew of cars and tried to carjack passing vehicles to get away, police and witnesses said. The doomed woman was getting into a car on Pennsylvania Ave. near Stanley Ave. in East New York when a white Mercedes Benz smashed into her at 7:15 p.m., police said. “We were outside, we heard the loud crash sound and then we went running to see what happened,” said Tianna Humphrey, 18. “And then, next thing you know, you see all the cars, there’s like four cars all crashed into each other and the lady was on the ground.” In several subsequent collisions, the driver slammed into at least six cars — in one instance causing a white Nissan SUV to jump the median onto the opposite side of the street, witnesses said. “As they were driving, like it was Grand Theft Auto trying to run and steal other people’s cars,” she said. “I was traumatized.
