THE BRONX - The driver in the Yonkers carnival crash that claimed the life of Kalie Gill has issued a statement offering prayers to the Gill family.

Gill, 15, was killed Friday and her sister, Lindsey, 12, was critically injured after a black Jeep struck them at a fair hosted by St. Paul the Apostle. Two other teens were injured in the crash and treated for minor injuries.

Roseanne Piccirilli, the driver of the car, is said to be taking time off from her job at St. Paul to grieve.

"She said the car wouldn't obey when she was putting her foot on the brake," says Father James Healy, who spoke with Piccirilli moments after the fatal crash. "She said it felt like she was putting her foot on the accelerator."

Police say Piccirilli stayed at the scene, was cooperative and submitted to standard tests.

The Gill family reportedly told a local newspaper they believe it was a freak accident and have expressed compassion to the driver.
