BROOKLYN - Loved ones said a final goodbye today to a 9-year-old girl killed in a three-car crash in Canarsie. 

Funeral services were held for Rebecca Ramnarine, who was with a friend and her mother when a minivan slammed into their car and another vehicle at Remsen Avenue and Avenue U more than a week ago. 

The minivan driver, Kenneth Palache, has been indicted on second-degree murder charges.

Five other people were injured in the accident.

The child’s family is from Queens, but they expressed gratitude to Canarsie community members who came to a vigil following her death.
