A lady driving on a Virginia expressway was killed Saturday when a 12-year-old kid bounced off a bridge and arrived on her auto in a presumed suicide endeavor.

In the immediate aftermath of the incident, a man in Harris' front passenger seat was able to stop the auto on the shoulder.

Harris was pronounced dead at the scene, according to NBC 4, but her boyfriend survived, managing to steer the vehicle off to the side of the road.

The juvenile was transported to Fairfax Inova Hospital and is still being treated for life-threatening injuries.

Virginia State Police say yesterday's freaky accident on I-66 was an apparent suicide attempt.

Harris graduated from Towson and was studying clinical counselling as a graduate.
