The 22-year-old was driving a Ford Escape, her dad says, with her boyfriend in the front seat, when Virginia State Police say a 12-year-old boy jumped off of an I-66 overpass and hit her.

In a grimly ironic death in Virginia Saturday, a 22-year-old woman who worked with children with severe behavioural problems was killed when a 12-year-old boy jumped from a highway overpass and landed on her vehicle.

"That's the irony that we're at looking at right now", her father, Patrick Harris said.

The boy was taken with life-threatening injuries to a local hospital, police said. There is no word yet on his condition. She was a clinical counseling student who would have helped the child if she had the chance, her mother told NBC 4 News Washington.

Harris, of Olney, Maryland, died at the scene, while the passenger was uninjured.

Caroline Wozniacki Ends Venus Williams Jinx To Win WTA Finals
While she may have been the underdog in their career head-to-head, the Danish tennis star has been fantastic on the 2017 WTA Tour. A second service break in the eighth game allowed Wozniacki to serve for the set only for Williams to break back right away.

Meanwhile, a mum who drove her auto off a cliff and into a reservoir past year, killing herself and her three young children, did it deliberately, officials confirmed last week.

Virginia State Police originally said that a man had fallen off the overpass and appeared to have gone through the rear windshield but later clarified that a boy had jumped.

Harris, who grew up in Marlyland, lived in Arlington and was pursuing a master's degree in clinical counseling at Marymount University. She wanted to devote her career to helping children, family members said. She previously graduated summa cum laude from Towson University.

"She didn't even get an opportunity to begin her life", Bruce said.
