The 6-year-old girl who was fatally struck by a car in Brooklyn has been identified by police — as the motorist who allegedly rammed into her was hit with a slew of charges, authorities said.
The child, Hiromy Tamy, was killed at the intersection of 67th Street and 12th Avenue in Dyker Heights — just outside her home — around 8 p.m. Tuesday when a black 2017 Lexus GX460 driven by Qiuhua Zhu, 30, struck her, according to police.
Zhu was heading south on 12th Avenue and crossed over the solid double yellow pavement markings, traveling into oncoming traffic, authorities said.
As he headed south in the northbound lane, he made a left turn at the intersection of 67th Street, striking Tamy — who was crossing south on 67th Street, in the east crosswalk, with the signal in her favor, police said.
Zhu initially kept driving, heading east on 67th Street, but then drove around the block and returned to the scene of the accident, cops said.
Responding officers found Tamy unconscious and unresponsive, with severe head and body trauma.
EMS responded and rushed her to Maimonides Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
Zhu, of Sunset Park, was arrested on multiple charges, including manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, vehicular assault, reckless endangerment, failure to yield to a pedestrian, causing injury, and failure to obey a traffic device, authorities said.
