A visit to New York ended in tragedy last night for an Australian family driving Astoria, where a two car collision left a little girl dead. Six other people were injured in the accident, which took place around 6:30 p.m. when a GMC minivan flipped over on its side after colliding with a Nissan Sentra at 34th Avenue and 31st Street. 10-year-old Sabrina Mangos of Tennyson, Australia, did not survive the collision, despite bystanders' valiant attempts to rescue her.

ABC 7 reports that people in the area rushed to help in the moments after the accident, and managed to lift the van upright in an attempt to get Sabrina out. But when the van was lifted upright, Sabrina was found lying unconscious in the street. "She was just lying to the side, her little head bleeding," local resident Jesus Jaimes tells the Daily News. "The father was hugging the girl. The brother went to hug her, too. The mother was screaming, devastated. We thought the van was going to explode."

The NYPD tells us six other occupants of the van were hospitalized, but are all listed in stable condition. (One 13-year-old was hospitalized with head trauma, according to ABC 7.) Police say the cause of the crash is still under investigation, and no charges have been filed. The driver of the Nissan Sentra, an unidentified 55-year-old man, was reportedly unharmed, and witnesses say he was "pacing back and forth" as emergency workers rushed to rescue the injured van passengers.
