The girls were enrolled in St. Barnabas school and the family is well known and respected. Damian Gill, Kalie's father, is a well-known figure in GAA circles.

Sources say the distraught parents were at the bedside of Lindsey, who suffered serious injuries. They say that Lindsey is responding to treatment.

Police said a 2002 Jeep was leaving the parking lot of Coyne Park at about 9 PM on Friday night when it struck three occupied vehicles, four pedestrians, and two parked vehicles before coming to a stop.

Kiliana Ortiz (47) of Yonkers saw the incident. "It was crazy the way she sped out — everybody was screaming and trying to get out of her way," she said.

"She must have been going 50 mph."

Kalie was pronounced dead at a local hospital and her 12-year-old sister was in critical condition. Two other teenagers were treated for minor injuries.

According to police, the driver of the Jeep remained at the scene and was interviewed by detectives.
