Woman Killed After 12-year-old Tries to Commit Suicide and Lands on Her Car

This is a tragedy.

A 12-year-old is suspected to have tried to commit suicide by jumping off a highway overpass. He survived, but he tragically landed on a woman’s car who was driving below. Her boyfriend was in the passenger side and was able to steer the car to safety. Marisa Harris was driving along I-66 in Fairfax County, Virginia when the accident happened. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Harris, 22, was studying mental health in a graduate program at Marymount University after graduating summa cum laude from Towson University.

Her mother noted that it was ironic that she was killed by someone she hoped to her in her future career.
